Only Lyon - Tourism and Conventions

The 100% essentials

The murals in the city centre

In 2 or 3 hours, have a walk around the city centre's fantastic collection of trompe l'oeil... Humor, realism, history: imagination guaranteed to amaze you!

2 hours: 

In Lyon, "Trompe l'oeil" murals and wall-sized frescoes are esssential references in the urban landscape.
They tell story of Lyon in different ways: here, through the great men from ancient times to the present day, here, in the form of a giant library, or here, like a film decor presenting one of Old Lyon's really finest hotels: Cour des Loges.

A novel, varied trip through an enormous open-air gallery! 

3 hours:

From the Croix-Rousse plateau, where a number of magnificent murals like the Silk-Workers Wall, rise up to the sky, down to the Presqu'île, from "traboule" to mural, a different way of conjuring the history of Lyon and two famous neighbourhoods.
