The Secrets of Lyon's Gastronomy


When gastronomy become an art-de-vivre...

PriceAdult: 20 €. Free entry for children < 8 years. Free with Lyon City Card.

The city of Lyon draws its renowned excellence from the surrounding region and the expertise of its chefs. And this is no doubt why Curnonsky, the famous culinary critic, called it the "capital of world gastronomy" in 1935!

From the silk workers’ mâchons to the contents of the cooking pots of the Mères Lyonnais (the “Mothers of Lyon”), Lyon has earned itself a reputation of a town in which the “art of cooking” has become a veritable religion.

Paul Bocuse has inspired this heritage by adding his own expertise as a top chef of international influence.

In the heart of the Presqu’île district and Old Lyon, this visit includes culinary anecdotes, food tasting and a historical presentation of the UNESCO site, and will enable you to discover Lyon's heritage as well as its gastronomy.

Duration of the visit: 2h. Please ensure you arrive 10 minutes before the tour starts.
