During your visit, your local guide, who is passionate about his city, will show you hidden places. After crossing the Saône, discover the Lyon old Town, the largest Renaissance district in Europe, classified by UNESCO. Continue your walk through the cobbled streets and admire the medieval architecture before tasting a local delicacy in a small confectionery. Discover the "Traboules", typical and unique hidden passages to move around the city. You will then take a funicular to the top of Lyon where you will learn more about the city's rich history and culture.
