Lyon Free Walking Tour Itinerary

Your free walking tour of Lyon will begin in Place de la Comédie, a square located in the heart of the city centre, where you'll find the Hôtel de Ville, or City Hall, and the Opera House. From there, you'll wander over to the Musée des Beaux-Arts, one of France's most important museums and largest collections of fine art.

Continue exploring Lyon on foot, reaching the Saint-Nizier Church, whose impressive Gothic-style façade will leave you in awe. The next stop on your route will be Place Bellecour, one of Europe's largest open squares, where you'll arrive after strolling through the famous Place des Jacobins, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to one of the city's most photographed fountains.

Walk alongside the River Saône, entering Vieux Lyon, the Old Town, where you'll be immersed in the city's fascinating Medieval architecture. Discover the history and curious facts surrounding the legendary traboules, historic passageways used to get around the city, as you admire the pink tower of the Traboule de la Tour Rose.

Finally, you'll visit Lyon Cathedral, dedicated to John the Baptist, located at the foot of Fourvière hill.
