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 its superb terroirs 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’ traditional 'mâchons' meal to the contents of the cooking pots of the Mères Lyonnais (the Lyon's female chefs), Lyon has earned itself a solid reputation as a city in which the 'art of cooking' has almost become a religion.

Paul Bocuse took inspiration from this heritage to become an internationally renowned top chef.

In the heart of the Presqu’île district and along the narrow streets of Vieux-Lyon, tastings and a historic presentation of the UNESCO site are available, to discover Lyon's heritage as well as its gastronomy.

Duration of the tour: 2 hours. Please ensure you arrive 10 minutes before the tour begins.
