The Secrets of Lyon’s Gastronomy

Considered since 1935 as the “World Capital of Gastronomy,” the city of Lyon draws its renowned excellence from the surrounding region and the expertise of its chefs. 

From the Renaissance period to today, meander the city in order to discover its specialties so as to relive its history in terms of gastronomy. 

From the silk workers’ mâchons to the cooking pots of the Mères Lyonnaises (the “Mothers of Lyon”), Lyon has forged a reputation across the ages of the city where the “art of the table” has become a religion. Paul Bocuse has inspired this heritage by adding his own expertise as a top chef of international influence.

In the heart of the Presqu’île and the Vieux Lyon, between culinary anecdotes, tastings and a presentation of the historic UNESCO district, this visit will allow you to combine both the discovery of the city’s heritage as well as Lyon’s famous gastronomy.
