What to expect

Push the city limits was the challenge of the people of Lyon over the past centuries. The gradual drying of the peninsula and its extension to the south have enabled the people of Lyon to settle permanently between the Rhône and Saône. In ancient times, traders and merchants built warehouses and private homes. The Middle Ages saw the birth of the village around the church of Saint Nizier, further away from the Grand Hotel-Dieu, further south the powerful abbey of Ainay whose current basilica is an extraordinary testimony. The French Revolution then profoundly changed the urban landscape of a peninsula. The 19th century will, therefore, see its morphology completely transformed.

This visit offers you a historical immersion in this peninsula heart. The town hall and the Palais Saint Pierre are the starting point for this visit. French classicism is expressed with great grandeur. After a visit to the church of Saint Nizier, a jewel of the Gothic period, the visit continues towards Place Bellecour, yesterday the city's royal square. The stroll will be done by taking traboules and streets. An opportunity to discover the inner and outer splendors of the Second Empire in Lyon
