On this tour, your guide-actor becomes an innkeeper in the 16th century (without costume) and speaks to you as if you were Flemish traders in Lyon to do business at the Grand Royal Fair of 1548.
Meet Isabeau or Anselme Fluchte ! Well-known inn-keepers in rue Saint-Jean.
Isabeau and Barnabé took pleasure in sharing their favorite places in their neighborhood, introducing their foreign visitors to working life of the neighborhood, and even showing them the best passageways (traboules) to make getting around the area easier. They even dared to divulge the best spots to buy silks.
Using anecdotes and stories from everyday life in Renaissance Lyon, you will discover the rich history of the city. A light-hearted and humoristic way to discover Lyon’s most treasured heritage site, Old Town Lyon.
