Discover Vienne – An old roman city

Right next to Lyon lies the charming Vienne, a small city full of history along the Rhone river. Let’s go and explore the hidden treasures of the city, from the Roman vestiges to the Pipet Hill. The city is also well situated in an agricultural area which produces one the finest wines of the Rhone Valley: the famous Côte-Rôtie.
Between the Roman temples and the Cathedral lies so many legends…can we find the treasures of the Templars?

In this tour, we’ll meet in the heart of the city to embark on a historical tour retracing the former glory of the Romans. We’ll see ancient Roman roads, pieces of aqueducts, houses and arches, as well as well-preserved remains such as the Roman temple and ancient theater. The medieval period was also very important, as witnessed by the Saint-Maurice cathedral and the Château de la Bâtie.

Accompanied by your guide, learn also what makes Vienne such a dynamic city, with annual events such as the Jazz à Vienne festival. Depending on the weather and your fitness level, we’ll also climb the Pipet hill to take in the spectacular panorama of the whole city, the Rhône valley and the Pilat massif. An epic journey through the ages awaits you here!
