Love stories, weddings and other scandals...
This unusual tour of the UNESCO center will be perfect for couples and anyone who loves romantic stories. Your private guide will take you to the most picturesque parts of the city and tell you the anecdotes about the figures that made the history of Lyon.
The tour will start at the Cathedral to learn everything about Henri IV's incredible mariage and secret mistresses… It will continue through the narrow streets of the Old Lyon where you will discover the famous traboules (hidden passageways) and the gorgeous renaissance architecture.
Right across the Saône river, discover the unmissable "painted wall of the famous lyonnais" and the fabulous story of Juliette Récamier, the muse of many artists, the parisian it-girl of the 19th century. . .
The tour continues in the cloister of the Fine arts museum that used to be a convent and it ends in front of the Opera house where you will hear about the most touching romance during the second World War !
