During the Second World War, the city of Lyon played a key role in the liberation of France from the Nazis and thereafter became known as the Capital of the Resistance. This tour takes its participants back in time to when Lyon became a hotbed of Resistance against the enemy, almost entirely behind closed doors.

Exploring from the north to the south of the Presqu’Ile via the Vieux Lyon, this tour presents some of the key figures of WWII and the heroes of the Resistance, and shows the streets, monuments and passageways where the clandestine battle for a free France played out.
