Everyone is welcome at the Cité de la Gastronomie!
The Cité Internationale de la Gastronomie of Lyon guaranties accessibility to the site for everyone. Bearing in mind the constraints imposed by the building of the Grand Hôtel-Dieu, listed as a historical monument since 2011, we endeavour to make the site accessible for the greatest number of people possible, so that everyone can take full advantage of the spaces, services and activities.
