10:00 am/English | On this guided walking tour of Vieux Lyon, you will discover this amazing neighborhood with Paul, your guide. We 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.<br><br>Tips are greatly appreciated. Our guides spend many hours of personal time increasing their knowledge to provide you with the best experience possible. Tips not only help financially but also let the guide know he or she is doing a great job.<br>Typical tip range has been e5-10 per person.

This Catholic church is a beautiful example of Neogothic architecture; Its position right on the river lends even more to its esthetics. Add a beautiful view and it is worthy of a visit.

A beautiful church, both inside and out, Eglise Saint Georges has a long history. The current building was constructed in the mid-19th century, but the actual site on which it is located goes back centuries, as long back as around the 6th century. Worth a visit and it's got river views too.

We were walking around Vieux Lyon on a Sunday late morning, a beautiful sunny day in late October, and some people mentioned that this church was open and having a service and it would probably be OK to go inside. So we went in, feeling a little awkward because we are not Catholic, and the church was full, with lots of families in the congregation. It was mid-service, with priests in red mitres and full regalia, with altar boys helping out and the organ playing. The singing and acoustics were gorgeous. There was incense in the air at the altar, so it was kind of misty, and the near-noon sunlight was steaming through the yellow/red/orange stained glass windows through the mist. It was breathtakingly beautiful and almost magical. It was a moment we will never forget, and quite emotional to experience.

This Neogothic Catholic church, completed in 1848, was built on the site of an earlier church that was established in the year 550. We were unable to go inside the church when we visited in the evening, but we found it was the focal point of the romantic panorama of old Lyon and the River Saone. Our favorite view included the river, the red walkway called Passerelle Paul Couturier, and the massive, well-lit Lycee Saint-Just looking down from the hilltop. The view must have inspired many young couples who strolled by the river as night fell. It inspired us.
