“Beautiful view of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

It's worth it to come up to Fourviere Hill for the view of the city and to take a look around this little town.

We purchased the Lyon City card which included many museums and the metro. You can take the metro line up to Fourviere Hill.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Situated near St Jean cathedral - old theatre , and ruins of old city- worth a visit. Full of history. I would spend a day visiting Fourviere as St Jean Cathedral is near and there are great views of the city .

“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

You will have a breathtaking of the city.You need to take the funicular in order to reach the 'summit'.A warning take the funicular to descend, the road is very steep, my knees have still been aching.
