We love finiculars, this is just public transport, very efficient, but just that, spectacular views, save that until you are out at the top.

This is a fun ride to the top of Old Lyon and site of the Basilica of Notre Dame and the Roman amphitheater ruins.

A cheap way to get on top of Lyon. And a nice escape from the "lowland" in Lyon. Nice view from the top but pretty crowded in the tram it self.

No doubt a great way to commute to the top of the hill where the Basilica of Lyon stands still!!! Use the park pathways to descent the hills!!! A pleasant little walk instead paying for the funicular again!!!

Fabulous way to access Fourviere - quick, reasonably priced and provides a rest. Funicular runs frequently.

Unfortunately I did not get to ride the tram as it was broken or down for repairs and or maintenace. This tram would make it much easier to get to the top of the hill to see the church.

The trip up in the funicular saves a long and steep walk to the top of the hill overlooking Lyon. The one directly up can get crowded but we took the one to the roman ruins and ten took a short walk up to the...More

Once you arrive at Vieux Lyon on the Metro, come up the escalator and turn left to the escalator signed for the Funiculaires. This is free and takes you through the hillside up to Fourviere.
