Itinerary

There, you will be able to appreciate the authentic Renaissance charms of the oldest neighborhood of Lyon and get the chance to admire one of its typical “traboules”. The first break, for “breakfast”, will treat you to a praline specialty, the famous pink sweet comprising an almond coated with sugar.

We will then pass through the legendary Passerelle du Palais, which offers an exceptional view over the city. The itinerary continues on the other side of the Saône, where the bourgeoisie settled from the 17th century. Slightly further on, Rue de Mercière reveals its traditional Lyon “bouchons”. Your guide will tell the history of these famous “Mères lyonnaises” which have shaped the city’s gourmet reputation since the 19th century.
