Burgundy Day Tours

Explore through Burgundy tours from Paris or Lyon with a private guide

The narrow cobbled alleyways and the famous traboules of the city allow paths to many places to visit in Lyon. Once home to the silk traders, these secret covered passageways reveal renovated architectural treasures, spiral staircases, and Italian-style galleries. They run in the direction of the Saône and gave the city’s silk workers access to the riverbank, making it easy to transport textiles whilst affording them shelter from the elements.

The Parc de la Tête d’Or is one of the country’s largest urban parks, with a zoo and France’s foremost botanical gardens. Housed in an old abbey from the 1600s, the Musée des Beaux-Arts is France’s second-largest fine art museum after the Louvre in Paris. Incredibly, the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière is still a performance venue during the annual Nuits de Fourvière drama festival some 2000-years after construction. A selection of tours in Lyon takes you to unusual places to visit. Discover a collection of murals dotted throughout working-class neighborhoods and less-known areas.
