We cannot find where the Old Lyon Renaissance district and it's Traboules walking tour starts. The "Go to: " section is blank. Does the tour begin at the tourist center in Place Bellecour or by the cathedral? Thanks

We will be in Lyon in July and wanted to know if the museums etc are open on 14th July Bastille Day? If we buy the Lyon card on line are we able to book the tours and boat trip before we get there?

Thank you
