Do you want to have a taste of the best food in town ?
Lyon is famous for several things : it's UNESCO center, and it's food.
Let's have a taste of both !
The tour starts in place Bellecour, the true center of the city.
Around Bellecour, we will walk a little to see the main monuments (The "Hôtel Dieu", the Celestins theatre, etc. )
There are 2 main stops here. One to taste the "Pâté en croute" and another one to taste the very famous "Quenelle". . . (If you don't know what it is, have a look at the pictures !)
The next part of the tour will take you to the Old Lyon, the famous medieval area, where you will learn all the anecdotes and stories about gastronomy back in the days, and those strange habits people had. . .
After that, it might be time for a cheese & wine tasting with my friend Laurent.
Then, a last "traboule", and finally, coffee and sweets.
What else ?. . .
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
