Overview of Lyon Food and Wine Tour

Elegant Lyon, whose old town is a UNESCO world heritage site, is France’s gastronomic capital. The vibrant Vieux Lyon historic streets are extraordinarily atmospheric, bursting with quaint bouchons and terrific, traditional bistros that historically were inns or post houses. They contrast deliciously with the new wave of creative cuisine from the city’s numerous Michelin-starred kitchens.

Lyon’s citizens live to eat; the locals think about food, talk about it, and are always busy planning the next meal. Daily food markets are bursting at the seams with freshly picked (by hand) fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, fresh-made pastries to swoon over, baked bread, local truffles, wild honey, local Bresse chickens, air-dried Jambon (French cured ham), wines from the nearby outstanding Côtes Rôties and Beaujolais vineyards and so much more!

Are you a lover of fine dining and unique culinary experiences? Then this tour is for you! You’ll savor the city’s flavors, immersing yourself in traditional and contemporary renditions of the cherished Lyonnaise cuisine. You will spend a few days in the vines visiting up-and-coming wine producers and mythical wine Maisons in the picture-postcard dreamy region of Beaujolais and the super prestigious Rhône Valley.

In Lyon, you will have a culinary expert take you food shopping, learn how to shop for and prepare a traditional Lyonnaise meal with a local chef, make chocolate with a maestro, sip champagne in an art deco style setting, and enjoy guided tours of the genuinely remarkable local markets, including Les Halles de Lyon – Paul Bocuse. And the ultimate highlight of this trip is, without a doubt, your dinner at the mythical Michelin-starred L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges de Paul Bocuse- exceptional!
