The Program

Thanks to 2000 years of history, the city centre of Lyon is listed on the UNESCO world heritage list since 1998. However, in Lyon, history and gastronomy are closely linked. Therefore, enjoy an unusual tour of the city. From Bellecour square, heart of the Peninsula, elegant and bourgeois district, to the Old Town, treasure of medieval and renaissance architecture, we will travel in time from treats to treats.
Traboules, history and little anecdotes, delicious tastings and stroll along the river banks… A cultural and gourmet tour, 100% Lyonnaise!

Meet, in front of the Tourist Centre on Bellecour Square, with you guide, a dedicated historian and food lover. To start your appetite your guide will treat you to a famous lyonnaise speciality: the “Coussin de Lyon”. The story of this emblematic treat is closely linked to the history of the Basilica of Fourvière on the top of the hill. You will be able to appreciate the unique beauty of its architecture while walking to the river banks.

On Saturdays and Sundays, you will be able to cross a farmer’s market to go to the Old Town and discover the local produce. Also, an occasion to taste gourmet surprises!

Passionate by the history of the city, your guide, takes you to explore the district. You will love strolling in its little alleyways to take in its beautiful and authentic architecture. You will cross the famous traboules and discover amazing hidden courtyards. The Old Town will soon no longer have secrets for you.

A treat is waiting for you at every corner: pink praline, chocolate, macaroon… Tastings vary based on the season, but every tour is a real culinary delight. A savoury stopover is also planned so that you can discover the local cold meats and cheeses as you taste a glass of wine.

Finally, the itinerary ends at Place Bellecour and you can choose in option a cookery workshop. Thanks to a fun and education approach, you will learn the secrets of Lyons cuisine as you’ll prepare your own “cervelle de canut”!
