Itinerary

At 9:00 am, meet your chauffeur guide in Lyon (train station or airport or hotel) and leave for a full day excursion in the Bresse & Dombes. Two regions, two characters: The Bresse with its Bocage, its wood-frame farms and its history where man and nature are joined, and The Dombes with its lakes, its birds and its medieval past. Plunge into these two delicious worlds during your day in the Ain.

Arrival in Bourg en Bresse and visit of the Royal monastery of Brou, a masterpiece by an emperor’s daughter. This flamboyant gothic jewel will fascinate you with its liveliness and the quality of its architecture. Free visit of the three cloisters and the fine Arts museum rich collections of French, Flemish and Italian artists from the 15th to 20th century.

Lunch in the heart of the Dombes in a traditional restaurant – 3 courses menu (drinks not included).

After lunch, cross the Dombes area with its thousand pounds and many birds species. Head to Pérouges for a flashback into the past and more particularly in the medieval time. Thanks to a great restoration of the village, you will enjoy touring into narrowed pedestrian streets of the hamlet.

After sometime on your own to visit the village and boutiques, meet at the Ostellerie de Pérouges, the main café restaurant of the village for a Galette de Pérouges (sugar pie) tasting.

Your driver will transfer you back to Lyon. End of the tour in front of your hotel in Lyon.
