It's free

The ruins are nicely renovated and it is free! Do know it is quite sporty with all the steps and height differences.

Not worth the trip up the hill for these ruins alone, but only a couple of hundred metres walk from the Basilica that dominates Lyon's skyline, so if you have made the trip up on the funicular, make the effort and take a look. Entry is free, and there is a spectacular view of the city, too. There is a... More

This is an interesting Roman theatre - temple complex just south of the church. It is also a wonderful concert venue and is used for festivals. Definitely worth a visit.

Using the cable car to the Roman Theatre is worth the trip. Only a few minutes walk from the stop. Remember to wear comfortable foot wear as there are cobbles and lots of stairs. P's there a toilets here.

We saw the theaters from the roof of the Gallo-Roman museum and was impressed by the view. The theater area was closed so we could not get a closer look, but the theater is still worth a detour if you are anyway going up the hill.

Visited this place at the same time as we visited Fourviere hill and the basilica. Good place to visit while at the same time giving some history lesson to the children.

Ruins are interesting, there are a few signs around, but not enough. Some areas are under repair or set up for shows. Worth the walk thru due to their age.

Really interesting place to walk around and get a feel for what the city would have been like in Roman times. Just a caveat: They put on a lot of events here and depending on the time of year you visit they may be setting up/tearing down for or from an event. Awesome views of Lyon from the top of... More
