The application

Available as applications on smartphones and tablets, the Blue Lion guides are practical and user-friendly guides which offer a unique cultural experience through modern day mobile devices…

Thematic guides

Our guides are designed to bring an original view and to offer knowledge-thirsty users a deep and novel understanding of cities and their secrets in multiple dimensions. Literature, arts, history, architecture and daily life blend in an enriching cultural discourse, attractive to both visitors and city locals.

Our authors

Historians, guides, architects, artists, actors or writers, we select authors who have varied backgrounds and interests but have in common the same enthusiasm for their city and its heritage. Through the Blue Lion guides our experts share their knowledge and their unique perspective on themes they are passionate about, in the hopes your visit will make you equally enthused!



Reading as you walk is not always easy or practical. That is why we have also included audio versions in our guides, just like the audio-guides offered in museums. At your leisure, our professional narrators accompany you throughout your visit to make your discovery of the city more pleasurable and simple.


And more…

Images, web links, maps and practical information - such as opening hours of monuments and museums, transportation, etc.- are embedded in the application and available to assist you during your visit, without your needing to worry about roaming charges. Wish to have a rest? Your guide will suggest selected restaurants, bistros, cafes on your path. And if you are visiting with your children, we often have special child-friendly suggestions in the routes.
