Hello! My name is Sarah, I'm a 37-year-old Lyonnaise who loves her city and its wonders, whether historic or contemporary: Lyon has got it all! Being a big fan of street art, I have been striding along the streets of Lyon in search for new and hidden creations of the best street artists that make Lyon alive. I have travelled all over the world and I believe street art tours are the best ways to discover the soul of a city! Come along! You will be happily surprised! ;-)

Where you'll be

Our experience will start on "Place des Terreaux" in front of the entrance of the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts). We will stride along the narrow streets of the Croix-Rousse slopes and climb up to the bottom of the Croix-Rousse plateau in search for art that makes the city alive! Your reward on the way: a beautiful view of the city of Lyon from my favorite lookout.
Finally, I will give you the option to either walk back down to our initial starting point on Place des Terreaux or continue to explore the area on your own (I can recommend restaurants and good spots for further visits at the end of our tour, feel free to ask me!).

Une façon originale de découvrir Lyon. Nous y étions en visite éclair. Nous adorons et connaissons le street art mais avions peu de temps pour flâner. Quelle bonne idée de faire appel à Sarah qui nous a fait passer une délicieuse après midi et découvrir de trés nombreuses oeuvres. Elle explique leurs contextes et les démarches des artistes. Elle aime sa ville, est passionnée et attentionnée. Enthousiaste, elle met à l'aise. Le temps à passé trés vite. Gros coup de coeur pour Ememem !!! Une belle rencontre vraiment.

Cool little tour, if you’re into street art or just want to get a feel for the area it’s well worth doing. Sarah has great knowledge of local artists, and also shared with us a bit about Lyon’s history, and took us to some beautiful look out spots. Throughly enjoyed it and have so many great photos, thanks Sarah!

Sarah seems to be very nice, but this tour just wasn’t for me. We spent to much time looking at a couple of pixel “art” pieces stuck on buildings. There has to be much better art than this. I know there is because I found several works on my own. Art is subjective - and as an artist, I understand this. My expectation was that we would see some really good work and hear stories explaining the artist and the work. This is not what I got. I hope you have a much better experience.

This was a great tour and we found things that I would have missed on my own. Also great to learn about the artists and how the city works around the street art seen. I recommend this tour. Heaps of fun
