Le Vieux Lyon Renaissance et ses traboules en 2h ©
This Renaissance district, listed by Unesco, is the largest area of this kind in France... This unique area of Gothic and Renaissance architecture has been chosen by UNESCO as World Heritage.
It covers 24 hectares along the banks of the river Saone. Old Lyon’s urban development mainly took place in the 15th and 16th centuries. After visiting the gothic cathedral, wander through the narrow cobbled streets and “traboules”… These famous covered passageways going from one street to the next via corridors through houses hide superbly renovated architectural treasures: inner courtyards, galleries “à l’italienne”, spiral staircases etc.
