Old Town Lyon

Protected area and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the largest Renaissance ensembles in Europe with Venice. 

Largely pedestrian, café terraces, restaurants and nightlife venues, the warm atmosphere of this district will seduce you. 

Can you find the famous traboules - alleys of buildings allowing you to go directly from one street to another through the interior courtyards?
