A full-flavored tour of Lyon’s legendary landmarks
Let your adventurous spirit take over on this diverse tour of Lyon, accompanied by a delicious food tasting! This guided, family-friendly e-bike tour takes in the best of Lyon’s sightseeing spots, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the history and culture of this splendid city. Bike to Bellecour Square, Fourvière Hill, the Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse, Tête d’Or Park, and along the romantic River Rhône, as well as many more legendary landmarks!
Your e-bike tour brings you right to the heart of Bellecour Square, one of the largest open squares in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the center of the Place Bellecour is a staggering equestrian statue of King Louis XIV, ruling over the square. The statue you see today was installed in 1825, the original of 1713 having been reduced to its materials during the French Revolution to build a cannon! Sitting right in the center of Lyon, the Place Bellecour is the focus of the city’s four main streets and boasts brilliant views of the Vieux Lyon and Lyon Cathedral just over the Saône.
You’ll continue getting a feel for the city at Fourvière Hill where you can enjoy a phenomenal panoramic view of Lyon from above. Park up your bicycle on ‘la colline qui prie’, ‘the hill that prays’, and enjoy a varied vista of historic neighborhoods, awe-inspiring architecture, and burgeoning natural spaces. The hill is also a site of staggering history - in 43 BC, Romans chose the site of Fourvière Hill to be the center of ‘Lugdunum’, now Lyon. On its crest stands an emblem of the city - the Basilique de Fourvière.
Your guided e-bike tour takes you through the Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse, one of the world’s most sustainable travel tunnels opened in 2013. As you cycle through this unique tube that burrows beneath the hill of La Croix-Rousse, you can enjoy stunning lights, video displays, and even music, installed for the entertainment of cyclists and pedestrians! This rogue route takes you on to the Tête d’Or Park, where you’ll discover a gorgeous green oasis amidst the city hubbub. The Parc de la Tête d’Or (‘Park of the Golden Head’) is a burgeoning haven boasting the Jardin Botanique de Lyon, a sublime boating lake, and even a small zoo where, free of charge, visitors can take a peek at primates, giraffes, deer, and reptiles.
Near the end of your e-bike adventure you’ll be rewarded with an authentic food tasting to really top off your tour! This 30-45 minute tasting allows you to sample some of the city’s most luscious culinary delicacies for a true taste of Lyon!
