- Walk down the hill through the Roman theaters OR through the garden OR we can use the cablecar if you want to save time.
- The Old district (from the 16th) known for its "traboules" (kind of secret passages)
- The peninsula which is the city center from the 19th, settled between the two rivers of the city.
- The Croix-Rousse Hill, where the silk workers settled in the 19th and where you have lot of artcraft

A Recent Review of this tour

Mari took us on a full day tour, from the obvious like Forviere basilica to fascinating nooks and crannies everywhere from Croix Rousse to Vieux Lyon. Never have we learned more in one day about a city's heart. We now have a huge leg up on any other tourist for the remainder of our stay in this wonderful city.
