Private tour of the UNESCO center + tastings !
Do you want to have a taste of the best food in town?
Lyon is famous for several things : it's UNESCO center, and it's food.
Let's have a taste of both!
The tour starts in place Bellecour, the true center of the city.
Around Bellecour, we will walk a little to see beautiful monuments (the Célestins theatre, etc. )
Our first stop is here : I will take you to one of the most famous shops in Lyon (Charcuterie Reynon) to taste the "Pâté en croute" (typical local meat pie with duck or Bresse chicken) and the traditional "Rosette" (dry-cured sausage).
The next part of the tour will take you to the Old Lyon, the famous medieval area, where you will learn all the anecdotes and stories about gastronomy back in the days, and those strange habits people had. . .
We will finish with a cheese & wine tasting and then, a last "traboule", and desert ! Macarons, "Coussins lyonnais" (marzipan sweet) and the famous "praluline" (brioche)
You will have a sample of the best Lyon has to offer !
