These two amphitheatres are of dark stone and not particularly attractive. They are quite heavily damaged and there is not much to see.

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.

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.
