    Great view of the city from the Basilica. The light show was worth the wait. You can reach via funicular, walk or car.

    The miniatures here are great, and it’s interesting to view them, though as these are at the top of the museum they seem almost an afterthought.
    Loads of great movie memorabilia, well presented. Everything is in a glass case, so would be nice to have a little variety, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
    Be prepared to climb stairs!

    We didn’t have long in Lyon so spent most of our time here & were glad we did. There’s plenty to see and do, even on a Monday (when a lot of things are closed).
    Maybe it’s a little touristy, but there’s a lot of history here too.

    We did eat here, a tasty meal that was fantastic value for money but the real joy of the place is all the food on display. Really worth a visit, we bought ½ a kilo of duck fois gras as it is almost unavailable in England. Wish I lived next door!

    At the stupendous Basilique another fabulous bonus is the array of panoramic vistas to be admired. Enhanced by the great afternoon clarity it was marvellous to stop and gaze for a time.

    A vast scene of the marvellous cityscape stretches expansively to the horizons. A bridge spanning the river, the water itself and a collection of some high rise builds all parade in view.

    Fortunately, we had a few days in Lyon is this museum might not have made our itinerary given all the other top things to do in town. But we were able to adjust our schedule, arrive at the open, take a break for lunch, and return for more. This is not a 2 hour walkthrough but rather a solid half a day.

    These ruins have stood the test of time remarkably well, and we enjoyed wandering around & imagining what it would have been like back then.
    There are also great views across Lyon.

    Even though hundreds of these passageways existed at one time, the majority are now closed, or private.

    It was great accessing one on Rue Saint-Jean that is classed as the longest in the city. Atmospheric it certainly was as we made our way quietly through courtyards and past buildings.

    From the time of its founding around 43 BCE the Romans were here for a few centuries. Their life and legacies are brilliantly evoked in this great museum.

    A fabulous Theatre is an undoubted highlight. Fine vistas of the extensive complex are wonderful.

    Stepping into the distinction museum, it was captivating descending from the highest level along the spiral walkway and seeing all the display rooms on route.

    And these contain brilliant artefacts from ancient times that superbly convey the times. Exemplary are some extensive mosaics.
