Get immersed into the best place to shop in Lyon : from « Lyonnaises Specialties » to Cheese and Wine tasting , you will have the opportunity to try some of the dishes that compose the typical french meal !
Originally localized in the Cordeliers area, since 1859, but finally moved close to the « Part Dieu » area in the beginning of the 70’, this market is today considered as « the place to be » for gourmets. Here people from all over the world come to discover some of the institutions, to try the food of the french capital of gastronomy, and to feel a very typical atmosphere.
With this tour, we offer you to learn more about the History : have you ever heard about the story of « Les mères lyonnaises » ? The women who created the food identity that the City of Lyon is so proud nowadays : La Mère Richard, La Mère Brazier, or La Mère Vitté ….

« Les Halles Paul Bocuse » is a place for shopping, but first of all a place to have a good time. For the Lyonnais it’s something common to come there on the week end, and to have a glass of wine with oysters with friends.
