Lyon Tours 2023. UNESCO World Heritage
Why Lyon tours are a must?
Take our tours in Lyon. It is the 2 nd. biggest city in France, after Paris.
In our Lyon Tours you will be able touch the real walls of the old town of Lyon (once called Lug-du-num (after the Celtic god Lugus )). The Ancient Theater (15 BC) is still here and is the venue for many shows to enjoy. In Lyon Tour we will come to this epic place for you to shine on the old stage (or to cope with the stage fright, if you have one). There are very few places in the world where tour visitors have access to the real millennia old stages. Old Lyon, the Fourvière hill, the Presqu' île and the slopes of the Croix - Rousse are in the U.N.E.S.C.O. WHL.
Sadly, the world does not know the 1 st. man who invented the wheel. But we know those (Bro. Lumières), who were the 1 st. ones to invent films. If you wish, our Lyon Tour will incl. the visit to place where both brothers are revered most. We will see the monument to them and the Museum. I feel thrilled to know that this, one of the biggest joys in the world, was made here.
It is not a surprise, that one of the world's most known events in Lyon is its Festival of Lights (Fête des Lumières). It takes place in early Dec. and is a must for Lyon Tours. It is to honor those, who gave the world light and hope.
Lyon is the gourmet mecca in the world. That’s what it is known for! That is why gastro - tours in Lyon is one of our top priorities. Lyon was also the hub in silk making.

It is a city of green travel, at least we aim at it in our Lyon tours. It is up to you to chose how to enjoy our Lyon tours – in a car or not.
Lyon is where the rivers Rhône and Saône meet. It is 391 km (243 mi) SE. of Paris, 278 km (173 mi) N. of Marseille, 113 km (70 mi) SW. of Geneva. That is why Lyon is so good for tours in Europe with an easy access to many other cities in Europe.
