Lyon is a city like no other. A UNESCO center with monuments from the antiquity to the 21st century and its two rivers make it a picturesque and unforgettable destination.
Is that it ? Of course not ! Lyon is also the french capital of Gastronomy…
This 3 hours tour offers a great overview of the historical center of the city (Croix-Rousse Hill and Old Lyon) with a private guide and an memorable wine and cheese tasting.
After enjoying the unforgettable views on the Hill and the banks of the Saône river, you'll wander the streets to discover the Old town, its ancient medieval streets, hidden passages (traboules), and gorgeous monuments.
The tour ends with my friend Laurent, to enjoy a glass of one of the best local wines, and a plate of cheese !
• 2h30 tour of the historical center (Croix-Rousse hill + Old Lyon OR Fourvière hill + Old Lyon)
• 1 glass of wine / person + a plate of cheese to share
• A map of my favorite local food shops in the center
• A little box of "Coussins de Lyon" (typical sweet)
Originally from the region of Lyon, I was first interested by art and history. After several years spent abroad (Mexico, Canada, Italy, UK,...) I became more interested in what makes our cultures so different, and what make our french (and lyonnaise!) culture so specific. Now, I am passionate about my city, my culture, and I love to talk about it ! My 2 favorite things in the city : - Walking in the Vieux-Lyon early in the morning. The renaissance area is a gorgeous place, but it can be quite crowded some times. If you are brave enough to wake up early and start the tour around 8am, you will enjoy a unique experience, that looks more like time travel than anything else ! - History and Food tour of Lyon. Well what is best than enjoying the most beautiful architecture and savoring the most delicious food ?. . . I know what's best : doing it with friends ! Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
