Guided tours Unusual Vieux-Lyon
Tour proposed by Cybèle

The Grand Royal Fair!

Anselme (or Isabeau,depending on the day), a colourful innkeeper, will take you on a tour of 1549 Lyon!
After welcoming you, along with your servants and your horses, he will give you all the advice you need to pick up some bargains at Lyon’s grand royal fair. If you are nice to him, he will tell you his favourite haunts and even teach you some drinking songs...

In this theatrical tour, the actor-guide (not in costume) plays the part of a Renaissance innkeeper, and treats you as if you were Flemish merchants. Prepare for a fascinating journey back in time.
A unique introduction to Vieux-Lyon and its ancient passageways!
If you wish to continue your discussion with the actor-guide, he will be happy to join you for an aperitif (a glass of wine or soft drink per person and platters of charcuterie and cheese to share).

I traboule, you traboule...

In Lyon, the verb "trabouler" is now part of everyday language and means to "walk down a traboule" or "take a short cut". So don't be alarmed if, during your tour, the guides suggests doing a spot of trabouling!
