About the guru Paul

Hi, I'm Paul and I've been a tour guide in Lyon for many years. I love to show people my city and make them understand what makes Lyon one of my favorite cities in the world. There is so much to talk about, from food (the culinary capital of France) to history (resistance, silk) to local culture. I also love to give tips about my favorite restaurants and activities in the city.

About the tour

On this guided walking tour of Vieux Lyon, you will discover this amazing neighborhood with Paul, your guide. I will explain the history and culture of Lyon, talking about a lot of things, like the Bouchon (local restaurants), the history of Silk production in Lyon, Klaus Barbie and the French resistance during the Second World War, Paul Bocuse and food culture and Renaissance in Lyon. We will visit many hidden passageways (the Traboules) and secret courtyards, that are sometimes hard to find on your own. For the last part of the tour we will cross over to the modern city center and visit some highlights like the Theatre des Celestins and the Hôtel Dieu, one of my favorite buildings!

I did the first tour and Paul was such an amazing guide, I couldn't not try the second tour. I liked this one even better. These little traboules and the stories that go with it.

I could just recommend these tours and the guide we had.

Such a beautiful city, so many stories... Thank you!
