Let’s get in traboule in the Old-Lyon!

Why is the Vieux-Lyon located at the very foot of the Fourvière hill? And these secret, mysterious galleries named traboules, why are they in Lyon and in Lyon only? And how is it that this district is the 2nd Renaissance complex in Europe after Venice?

Come along with me and you will get the answers to those questions, not to mention many other juicy anecdotes while marveling at the admirable traces in the stone left from the Middle-Ages & the Renaissance. Indeed, far from being an open-air museum, the Vieux-Lyon is a lively, striking and very endearing district! You won’t forget it!
