Switchboard Taxi Lyonnais 24h/24 7d/7 since 1971

Fourvière an old town of Lyon

The hill that's bustling, at the start of the 1th century, was home to some 8 000 canuts (silk workers). Today, it is only la Maison des Canuts (the Home of the Silkworkers) association Soierie Vivante (the "living silk" society) that are perpetuating this centuries old tradition.

The food market, the "chestnut parade" authentic "bistrots" and the numerous squares where players aim and launch their "boules" all contribute to making the Croix Rousse a true village inside the city overflowing with charm and poetry.

Set off an the discovery of the Croix Rousse slopes, wander through the traboules and, while admiring the frescos of the silkworkers and famous Lyon artists, marvel at the treasures revealed at each turn.
