Trip Info

Enjoy exploring the history of the French Resistance on this private tour. Together, we walk through secret passageways in a non-tourist district of Lyon, down an urban hill to where Resistant performed their actions to annihilate the Nazi occupant.

Your guide will know some Resistance members thanks to the research done and the lectures given with them when they come and share their experience. This enables you to have a first-hand account of what happened in the capital of the Resistance.

At your convenience, this two-hour tour can include a visit to a workshop where clothes were clandestinely woven for Resistance members on traditional silk looms. Other places are arms caches and meeting points where we will talk about aliases, code names and other secret resources.

Your adventure awaits!
