The small train of Croix-Rousse is running through this so atypical district. Lyon City Tram’s goal is to make you discover the “colline des Canuts” on a different way. Its design was not chosen at random because it looks like the historical cable...more

Fascinating tour of the city's silk district. Off the beaten track due to the steep hills. A piece of history that we would otherwise have missed out on. This tour is included in the City Card.

Excellent tour, seeing a part of the city that you wouldn't normally see due to narrow winding cobblestone streets. Thoughtful driver who stopped for photo opportunities. Interesting, information packed audio narrative provided - with eclectic mix of french songs, appropriate for the occasion.
