Old Lyon's Renaissance district and its traboules

The unique area of gothic and Renaissance architecture has been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage.

Its covers 24 hectares along the banks of the river Saone.

After visiting the gothic cathedral, wander through the narrow cobbled streets and "traboules"... 
These famous covered passageways going from one street to the next via corridors through houses hide superbly renovated architectural treasures: inner courtyards, galleries "à l'italienne", spiral staircases, etc.
