Exploring one of the most enchanting and artistically rich neighborhoods in Lyon, this tour takes you right to the heart of the former silk workers district through cobbled streets, secret passages and peaceful squares. Home in Ancient times to communities of religious settlers and to this day a Roman amphitheatre, the Croix-Rousse became famous in the 16th Century as the centre of the City of Silk.

Your local guide will take you street by street through the history of this neighborhood of craftsmen and creatives, still seen today as the artistic hub of the city.
