Discover the Renaissance architecture and its "secret" passages
Let's discover this 16th century architecture with its typical architecture : numerous inner courtyards, spiral staircases and over all the "traboules" that you can't see in other places than Lyon. They are kind of alleyways through the buildings.
Let's discover the cathedral built between the 12th and the 16th century.
Let's stroll in the narrow cobblestoned streets of this preserved district which became the most touristic of the city.
You will never forget it!
We will walk in the streets like Rue St Jean, Rue du Boeuf, Rue des Trois Maries, Rue Lainerie or even Rue Juiverie.
We will see some places like Musée Gadagne, Maison du Chamarier, la Tour Rose or even la Loge du Change.
And of course, we will go through some traboules.
