What are we going to do

The Old Town of Lyon one of the biggest and best-preserved Renaissance areas in Europe. Our walking tour takes us to the heart of Lyon’s history. This is where everything started almost 2000 years ago. Experience an authentic medieval atmosphere and admire beautiful architecture while adventuring in the numerous secret corridors called “Traboules” which can take you through entire buildings. If the little Sherlock inside of you got curious, come with me. Let’s go and find them!

About Liisa - the Doer

I’m a French and Swedish teacher from Finland who loves to travel and meet new people. About five years ago I came to Lyon and fell in love with this beautiful city. I’d like to share my personal high lights of Lyon with you and show how special this city really is. Once you get to know all the stories and see the secrets of this over 2000-year-old city, which is by the way European capital of gastronomy, you will be in love too.
My other true love is my hometown Helsinki.

Join me on a walk in beautiful and versatile Lyon.
My tours are available in French, English, Finnish and Swedish.

Thank you so much Liisa! That was a very enjoyable morning spent with you exploring the traboules and hearing the explanations about the Silk Road and the housing for the weavers and the trip up the stairs to Croix Rousse. Watching the silk worms and reading about their life cycle was fascinating. You are very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to meet you. Thanks again.

Thank you so much Liisa for putting me in contact with Christina. My mum and I enjoyed a wonderful evening exploring places we never would have found on our own. I would highly reccommend your services!
Cheers

The 'Lyon stairs challenge" with some cultural details is a great idea! Why not anybody else has discovered it? While taking steps up and down sneak silently into the Traboules to take a breath. So cool!

Hi Lisa
Thank you for making it possible to have this tour while you were away. Christina was very personable and easy to be with and took me through places I would never have found by myself. The traboules were a great experience and the tour was great value.

What a lovely afternoon with exciting information on Lyon and it's history with silk. With Liisa's passion and knowledge made this experience really memorable and we fell in love with Lyon. Highly recommend!
