The itinerary

Your Lyon nocturnal exploration begins at the Fourvière Basilica where you’ll take in a spectacular panorama of the city as your guide introduces you to the sights below. A short walk away from this vantage point takes you to the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière, a Unesco world heritage site. From here, you’ll descend to the Vieux Lyon to the Saint-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral, where you’ll have time to admire the details of this Romanesque and Gothic masterpiece. You’ll continue to the Palais de Justice, a place thought by many Lyonnais as too beautiful and grandiose for criminal tribunals.

From the Vieux Lyon you’ll cross over the Saône to the Presqu'île and along to the Pont Bonaparte via the Italian-inspired Théâtre des Célestins for another picturesque view of Lyon by night. In this area your guide will introduce you to the famous Bouchons Lyonnais, where authentic local cuisine is served by some of the best chefs of the region. Your tour culminates in the centre of the Presqu'île at the regal Place Bellecour, where your guide will bid you farewell in close proximity to some of the most inviting bars and restaurants in Lyon.
