We spent much of two days in Vieux Lyon, including a tour provided by our Lyon City Card. The guide was excellent. We learned lots of history and culture and explored the fascinating traboules. Highly recommended.

This area of Lyon is quite charming with the original small, quaint cobble stone streets. There are many fine restaurants in this area serving delicious local cuisine. Of course there are also many tourist shops in this area.
