A unique way to discover the city


With more than 100 "trompe l'oeil" murals and countless street artists, Lyon is often considered as the French capital of Street Art.
There is one district that is home to hundreds of works, from simple tag to collages and other art installations : the slopes of Croix-Rousse hill.
But they are not always easy to find, and they disappear very regularly. That is why you need a guide, to explain you about each work and to help you find your way through these unknown streets !

Itinerary

Starting on the top of Croix-Rousse hill, we will see two giant murals (which is the legal part of street art).
Then we will begin to go down the streets of the district "slopes" in search of works glued, painted or installed for which you must have a keen eye to notice.

The itinerary can change because some works are cleaned by municipal services.

We will end the tour near Terreaux square.
