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

Short one-hour version

Meet your guide on Place de la Comédie, in front of the Lyon Opera House, before setting off on a guided tour of the ‘Quartier des Terreaux’, on the northern edge of the Presqu'île district.
The tour will take you through Rue Désirée, which runs between the slopes of Croix-Rousse hill on one side and the city centre on the other. Next is Place des Terreaux, a square that is famous for its fountain, where you can take in the magnificent facades of the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall) and the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts).

Your guide will then take you to Rue Major-Martin, where you will learn about the tradition of the authentic local eateries known as ‘Bouchons Lyonnais’. This is followed by a stop at the ‘Mur de la Bibliothèque’, a famous mural painted by the artist cooperative CitéCréation in 1998.

The tour ends on the banks of the Saône, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the old part of the city.

The Bartholdi Fountain

The famous fountain on the Place des Terreaux was made in 1888 for… the city of Bordeaux! It initially represented the Garonne and its four tributaries. Following Bordeaux’s decision to not go ahead with its plan, Lyon bought the fountain in 1890.
