First we went to Place Bellvue, but were not so impressed. Then found another place on Rue Jean-Baptiste say. It is quite a view which we can see the Basilique Notre-Dame on the Fourviere hill over the river Saone.

One day we walked up and down the steps. It was a very hot day. We saw great views of the Basilica. Another day we got a Metro pass and went up to Croix Rousse for a lunch. We really liked it up there.

It's very nice area with fantastic view! There is so many steps to go up on the hill! It's so romantic to seat there with your love and enjoy. I think it's one of the best area in Lyon to live. I've rented a flat there with Fourvier view. It was a pleasant to fall asleep every night looking at... More

My partner and I stayed for a few days near Henon on line C of the metro. The neighbourhood has great views of Lyon, lots of cosy and good prices cafés, boulangeries and a great vibe at night. Make sure you travel to the top on a summer night and enjoy a glass of wine on the grass/stairs overlooking the... More

This area is fantastic. It's at the top of a hill, secluded from the rest of Lyon and gives you everything you need. Great restaurants and bakeries and shopping. There is a market every morning where many of the locals go to get their groceries for the day and the sights, smells and people watching is unparalleled. Tip...take the C... More

Croix-Rousse is located at the junction of artists' homes and more luxirous home-owners. Lots of stairs, steep hills, cafés and bars to enjoy in the neighborhood. The view of the city is breathtaking if you make it to the top!

We were using our last couple of hours carefully so ventured up by taxi. Not much up here, said the driver. He was right as far as we could tell. Lovely little market though (food) on the Sunday. So we walked across the place and down the steep hill to the bottom and some other great squares. Worth it for... More

Really great but be prepared to climb or descend a lot of stairs. Historic and hip, a great combination, lots of things to see and places of all description to eat. Took the audio self guided tour (tourist centre) also toured the old city with the audio guide. Highly recommend as you can go at your own pace and not... More

An interesting area best explored I think by taking the metro to Henon and wending your way down towards the Hôtel de Ville part of Lyon. The giant wall mural is near Henon metro station (on the Bde des Canuts named after the piece workers of the silk industry). Some good views to be had to the east and south... More
