Full description
Start the tour at the charming Place de la Comédie, in the heart of Lyon. See the City Hall and the Opera House situated on either side of you as you meet your guide. First, stop outside the Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon. Learn about one of the most important museums in France, which rivals its more famous contemporaries in the capital. The next stop is the magnificent Church of Saint Nizier with its imposing Gothic exterior. Pass Place de Bellecour, one of the largest rectangular squares in Europe and continue towards the famous Jacobins Square. Note the famous fountain of the square, one of the most photographed locations in the city.  Continue along the Saône River through streets which gradually become narrower.
