Trip Info

The old town of Lyon has been saved by passionate people against the demolition workers in the 1960′s. Since then, the quarter has been renovated, so that the visitors are charmed by the striking atmosphere of these cobbled streets. The houses recall to us the way of life in the end of Middle Ages, with the influences of Italy.
In the 16th century, Lyon was the new economic capital of the French Kingdom. Humanism in Lyon was strong, but this rise also had setbacks. Take a stroll in the middle of this beautiful quarter “Vieux-Lyon” on this walking tour.
