This place has it all with the Roman amphitheaters and the great views of the city. If you're into history this is a must stop...even if you're not you should get up there just for the views. Leave time to explore, more than just a photo opp.

I had read about the Roman ruins on Fourviere Hill before our visit to Lyon and did not want to miss seeing these spectacular ruins. The site is free of charge, but you will probably not want to walk up the hill on foot, it is very steep and will tire out almost any traveler.

This is also known as Lugdunum. It gives you a sense of enormity of time and place, being 2000 years old. Just walking around in it and thinking about that is quite something. It's free and a really good thing to experience.

I have been to lots of amplhtheatres and have declaimed experimentally from the focus point. My partner had not and found it fun, particularly from the smaller one. Do test the acoustics for yourself

I went here by accident with my friend. from away when you look at it, it seems nothing but when you actually go and walk on it, it is breathtaking, the steps are so high and the stones are big. A nice place to take a walk and see a view of Lyon from the top.
