On the menu for the walk
A visit in the maze of the Grand Hôtel-Dieu, its courtyards and its historical gardens. Head to the Halles du Grand Hôtel-Dieu shops for an aperitif: charcuterie board with Lyon sausages, pâté en croûte or brioche sausage from the Pignol house, then regional cheeses from the inevitable Mère Richard, all accompanied by wine from the Guyot house. And to close this enchanted interlude, we toast with a cocktail in the Grand Réfectoire.
