In addition to the museums and churches to be found in the Old Town area, there are all sorts of shops, cafes, eateries and other watering holes. I spent a few hours wandering the streets and alleyways mainly window shopping and people watching. Too much...More

This is a lovely old town full of winding streets, intriguing medieval passages, restaurants, shops and lovely candy shops and gelato stands. We enjoyed wandering the area for an afternoon.

This new name including the roman theater and the museum is a symbol of the long history of Lyon. The choice of one of the former name of the city means that Lyon is always following the same way to be present in the word...More

We spent several days in Vieux Lyon - we LOVED the traboules... hidden gems in a city! Although it is touristy, it still retains its 'old-town' charm. LOVE it and want to revisit!

The Vieux Lyon is the old part of the city. Lots of restaurants, shops, and secret passageways between streets.

What a classic old town experience! The shops are nestled. History abounds! View the silkworms in the enclosure and see the artisans at work. The streets are cobblestone, but they are, for the most part, walking streets. There will be an occasional car driving past....More

During the day, this is a nice place. At night, it really comes alive with terraces full of relaxed diners. There are many Bouchons lyonnais with great terraces to revel in warm summer evenings. The atmosphere is happy, relaxed, pleasant... It is central to many...More
