Full Description of Lyon Highlights & Halles-Paul Bocuse Visit

 

Of strategic importance during the Roman empire, the city lived its Golden Age during the Renaissance largely thanks to its flourishing silk industry. This guided tour begins with a personalized introduction to the city’s history, architecture and gastronomy. You will visit Notre Dame de Fourvière, a fine example of a 19th C eclectic architectural style with exhuberant marbles, stained glass and mosaics. The Basilica overlooks Lyon with an impressive panoramic view. Also visit the principal remains of the Roman city of Lugdunum, the Roman theatre and the smaller odeon.

Continue to the old city center of Lyon, a maze of narrow streets and the Renaissance historic buildings Among the 'musts' in this part of Lyon, in addition to the cafés and restaurants, are the "traboules", narrow Renaissance alleyways mostly running perpendicular to the river. Also in the old city is the gothic 12th C Saint Jean Cathedral  where Henri IV and Marie de Medicis got married in 1600.

Cross the splendid Place des Terreaux  and don't miss the painted murals in trompe l'oeil, and you will have the chance to visit the majestic "Fresque des Lyonnais" and La Croix Rousse, The "Canuts" or silk-workers used to live in the Croix-Rousse. The "traboules" were very important for them. You will see just why!

Just after the city highlights tour continue to the Halles de Lyon - Paul Bocuse, one of the reasons that Lyon is known as France’s capital of gastronomy. The Halles is an indoor food market built opened 1859 with an incredible variety of the finest quality food all together under the same roof. Your guide will introduce you to the different fine products in the market as well as tastings that will be of great delight!
