Old Lyon and the traboules

Visitors should wander through Lyon’s famous “traboules” to get a real feeling of the place. These unique and mysterious centuries-old passageways that run through and link outstandingly styled buildings were alleyways in which conspiracies and deals were planned and executed giving a spirit and soul to them. There are 60 such passageways in the Vieux Lyon area and around 400 throughout the city!
