In this exciting live-streamed and interactive online experience, I will take you to the medieval and Renaissance-era district in Old Lyon. 

We will start from the amazing gothic cathedral Saint-Jean and see the funny sculptures in its facade. I will then take you to the world-famous maze of hidden passageways known as Traboules, which can take you  from street to another from within the buildings and were once used by silkworkers who wished to keep the tricks of their trade secret.

Continuing on, we will pass through some incredible courtyards, such as the Tour Rose or the iconic Pink Tower, and bustling squares full of restaurants, such as the Place Neuve Saint-Jean.

I have been a tour guide for 10 years in Lyon. I own two companies, one dedicated to interactive tours, and another one that specializes in food tours. There is no tour with me without a tasting! I mostly work with English-speaking guests and train local guides at Lyon University. I guarantee a 100% convivial tour with anecdotes and fun, far from cliches. I enjoy introducing my guests to local people, such as artisans to showcase their passion and prowess.
