Clemence was a delightful. Her knowledge of the history, geography, architecture, and art of Lyon was amazing! Her hill to hill tour had us walking through history at a manageable pace. The insights of secret passageways and murals of trompe d'oeil would have been missed on our own. From viewing the last working Jacard loom to seeing landmark marionettes, she guided us across Lyon. Clemence's pleasant nature, and careful attention to detail included photos from her personal binder. Adaptable- so great!
