A FAMILY DAY
Departure from Lyon at 9am
By 9.45 am, you'll be in Yzeron for a connected "Walking with Guignol" (En Marche avec Guignol) hike. Starting at Châteauvieux chapel, all you have to do is download the "Mhikes" app, and young and old alike will be set to walk the village trails guided by the puppet Guignol. This 4 km walk is fairly flat and is therefore ideal for children.
At lunchtime you can reward your family with a picnic by Ronzey Lake, or head for one of the many village restaurants.
Once you've recharged your batteries, you can pay a visit to Musée Théâtre Guignol in Brindas. Here, you'll discover a collection of over 200 puppets, as well as 2,000 decorative pieces, costumes and accessories. To add to the fun you can even take part in a game during your visit to the museum.
So, now you know everything there is to know about Guignol, it's time to head back.
Back to Lyon at 6pm
