Full description
Meet with your local epicurean guide on top of the Croix-Rousse hill, bring your appetite and let your guide take care of the rest. Take a moment to fully appreciate the unique atmosphere of this district, like a village in the city. You can still imagine the time when one would weave those beautiful silk scarfs. This tour, both historic and gourmet will give you the best vision of the city you can have. Discover the city on unbeaten tracks and far from the touristic places and taste the best local specialties. Start with the emblematic quenelle, discover the traditional restaurants, the bouchons. Further on in the tour, you will walk around like an authentic Lyonnaise. A tour of Lyon would not be complete without cheese and charcuterie. Thanks to institutions in the city you will get to taste the best of it. Finally, it is time for a sweet note. One of the best chocolate shops in the city opens its doors for you to visit the workshop and have a taste. This tour is perfect for a complete discovery of this authentic district that will delight the gourmet that lives in you.
