“sorry to be critical, but..."boring"”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

I just do not understand what all the fuss is about. Ok, the painter/painters must have been talented. And yes, the wall looks quite nice from far away. But, if that is all Lyon has to offer as an attraction, that is really sad. I saw a tour-bus parked in front of the wall with tourists pouring out to take pictures, and I thought to myself, if I were one of the tourists, I would be so disappointed because Banksy, it is not. If you are in that part of the Croix Rousse, get some compensation by soaking up a great view of the eastern horizon at the esplanade of the Gros Caillou nearby.

“Tricking the eye”
Reviewed May 25, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled across this after mistakenly seeing a 'painter' as we were stepping around some roadworks.

after admiring the painter and surrounds we started walking further down the street
we noticed lots of people with cameras so turned and saw the wall.

It is impressive. Definitely worth a look.
