At the foot of the Fourvière hill, the Vieux-Lyon looks nice. It is still mostly there despite the threat of destruction of the 60s. Today it is a classified district at UNESCO. Frequented at the time by the kings of France, it is the witness, through his houses of the Renaissance, of the glorious past of the city at the time of the fairs, the birth of the silk in Lyon, the printing press, the commerce and banking activities. You will discover its history, the past and the daily life of its inhabitants by wandering through its courtyards and famous « traboules » these alleyways, typical of the lyonnais city planning. Today this touristy and lively Old Lyon is still roaring on the foundations of its past.
