Then explore Vieux Lyon, the oldest part of the city, on the west bank of the Saône. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has several interesting Gothic and Renaissance buildings. Stroll the narrow streets of this area and check out some of the small shops.

In the afternoon, you'll have a wine tasting experience. Please arrive on your own at the Bar a Gones, located at 5 Place St. Paul, at the north end of Vieux Lyon. Reservations are not required; you can arrive any time between 4 p.m. and midnight, Tuesday through Saturday.
