Welcome to the hub of culinary wonders that is Lyon! We won't waste any time getting stuck in with an optional walking tour of wondrous Lyon, with its chic bistros and boulangeries. As well as exploring the city's icons, we'll also uncover 'Hidden Lyon' through it's secret passageways, known locally as Traboules. Once used by locals to cross the city undercover, they were also used by the Resistance in WWII to hold secret meetings and contributed to protecting Lyon from total Nazi occupation. After some exploring, our local guide will take us through the food markets to shop for the freshest local produce. What are we going to do with all this food? Cook it, of course. That's right, our guide Anne Sophie is also our host for the evening, and she'll take us into her home for an immersive cooking class. Once we've learned all the tricks that make French cuisine so delicious, we'll get to enjoy the fruits of our labours (maybe with a glass of wine, or two).
Once we're suitably stuffed with history, culture and food, we'll head back to the Chateau for a well deserved chilled night. We've got more adventures in store tomorrow.
