Strolling Through Old Lyon

An unforgettable experience

Entering Vieux Lyon is like crossing a bridge into the Middle Ages, its lovely Gothic buildings and labyrinthine maze of narrow streets and lanes so well preserved that it casts an almost mystical spell on visitors. The centrepiece of this UNESCO World Heritage Site located at the foot of Fourvière Hill is the Cathedral of Saint-Jean, a Gothic masterpiece. But perhaps its coolest features are the traboules, atmospheric passageways and patios between buildings. Vieux Lyon is a wonderful experience by day - with its cafés and little shops - and by night, for dinner in its cosy, romantic restaurants. Some things never go out of style...
