Enjoy this Private Lyon Walking Tour in the city of Lyon along with your private official guide. Get to know the most emblematic places of the silk capital. This tour will focus on the medieval side of the city, also known as ‘Vieux Lyon’.
The tour starts at the streets of Old Lyon, more exactly at the Gadagne Museum. This complex consists of three interesting museums: the Lyon History Museum, the Museum of Renaissance Buildings and the Museum of the Puppets of the World.
Your next stop will be the Cathedral of Saint-Jean, an impressive Christian edification built, from 1180 to 1480, that clearly represents the transition from Romanesque to Gothic. After that, we continue to Saint-Jean square to take a small break and enjoy a cup of coffe and a croissant at any of its surrounding stores.
The last stop, but not the least important is Saint-Jean Street (Rue Saint-Jean). A narrow and cobbled pedestrian street, surrounded by many interesting restaurants and stores.
There are many more places where your private tour guide can help you to explore, even the most emblematic and impressive places of Lyon, where you can take the best photos whenever and wherever you want along your private tour.
