Tours in Lyon

Being a primary city for tourism in France, visitors can expect to find numerous organised tours to help you along the way in discovering the best Lyon has to offer. Top of the list, Lyon's City of Lights Tour holds it's place owing to the uniqueness of this particular tour, which will open your eyes as to why Lyon earned its nickname as the 'city of light'. Lasting two hours on an open-top bus, this tour takes visitors around the major works of Lyon's lighting experts; famous for illuminating night-time Lyon in a very special way.

On the religious architecture front, a trip to Lyon would not be complete without a visit to the centre-point of Lyon's glory; the Basilica of Fourvière. And to make a visit fully informative, visitors can join one of the regular tours that will put you in the know about the history of the basilica's construction, with an additional guided visit to the Museum of Religious Arts.

But if religious architecture is not your thing, try a fun tour of the Traboules de la Croix-Rousse - a maze of Renaissance period passageway spread across the whole of the Croix-Rousse hill area. If that sound like a lot of up and down leg work, there is also the option sitting down for a two hour open-top bus tour ( Le Grand Tour Lyon). This time during the day, the Grand Tour Lyon takes visitors on a guided tour around all of Lyon's major areas of interest, including; Bellecour, Fourviere, Guillotiere, Cordeliers, Saint Georges, Saint Paul and Croix-Rousse.
