About Lyon City and Lyon Tours
Lyon is the third largest city in France. Founded by the Romans in 43 BC at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, Lyon is the capital of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region with its own culture and culinary arts.
Lyon is also the city where cinema was born, with its museum located in the former house of the Lumière brothers. Experience the delicious cuisine and culture up close by participating in Lyon tours.
In the Renaissance old city known as Vieux Lyon, one of the most important parts of the UNESCO list, you can easily wander without a map among the desolate passages called traboule designed to allow people to sneak from street to street.
Make sure to stop on Rue Saint-Jean to see the stunning Gothic cathedral, and Rue du Bœuf for designer shops and Michelin-starred restaurants. With its nightlife and shopping opportunities, you will understand why Lyon is a city that has it all.
Lyon has numerous museums, including the Parc de la Tête d'Or, the Basilica of Fourvière, the Musée des Confluences, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, and the Musées Gadagne.
