Description

Discover fascinating Vieux Lyon (Lyon Old Town) and marvel at one of UNESCO’s largest World Heritage treasures. Along with your experienced local guide, stroll through the city’s paved alleyways and learn about the secretive history of the traboules (passageways) used in the silk industry.

Starting out from the heart of the Renaissance District, begin your fascinating walk through the neighborhoods that comprise Vieux Lyon, including the stunning gothic façade of the city’s cathedral. Venture inside this huge church and look for the famous astronomical clock that is housed within its mighty walls.

Explore farther down the charming, narrow lanes and uncover the secrets of the traboules, covered passageways that were once used as ways to transport silk goods during Lyon’s reign as the center of Europe’s silk trade. Marvel at the serene inner courtyards, galleries, and spiral staircases of this captivating city.

It was at a comfortable pace and the commentary from the guide was informative and not overdone. She answered questions graciously and made sure we were all keeping up with the group. She was very professional.
