Loved going through these - first with a tour group, then on our own. Some were open, but for others we had to press button. The locations are on the free map we picked up at the Tourist Office.

What an amazing part of the city. A guide took us through three of these passageways and explained the history of them and how they are still used. She encouraged us to find more of them on our own and wander through them - quietly...More

We were amazed as we walked around Vieux Lyon to find the doorways which led to such beautiful little courtyards, staircases and balconies... what a treat! Just push the door and see if it opens - what a novel way to take a short-cut through...More
