Guided tours Presqu'ile Bellecour
Tour proposed by ONLYLYON Tourisme et Congrès

Take a one-hour stroll through the area around Place Bellecour, to discover culture and landmarks

Short one-hour version

Meet your tour guide in front of the Tourist Office on Place Bellecour (known as ‘Place Royale’ before the French Revolution). Over the course of this guided tour, you will learn about the history and architecture of the area around the square, which is now the very centre of the city.

Your guide will take you to Place Antonin Poncet, where you will find a panoramic view of the left bank of the Rhône, followed by Rue des Marronniers, a magnet for gourmets with its many restaurants.

The tour will then bring you to Passage de l'Argue, one of the oldest shopping arcades in France, built as early as 1825, which still makes a stunning visual impact today.
Nearby, in the heart of the district, you can admire the remarkable facades along Place des Jacobins and the fountain in its centre.

The tour ends on the banks of the Saône, with a splendid view of Vieux-Lyon (Old Lyon) and the hill of Fourvière.
