The funicular station can be found in the Vieux Lyon area of Lyon. A good day can be had wandering the old town before using the furnicular and heading up to the Roman Ampphitheatre and museum and the Basilica at Fourviere. Train is quick and clean.

We stayed in the Fourviere area, so this darling little funicular saved us every day. It's the same cost as a ride on the rest of the metro system, and runs fairly frequently.

The Funiculaires de Fourviere is found inside the train station "Vieux Lyon". Buy a ticket at the machine (English is an option). It is only 3 Euros return and is worth doing to avoid walking up the steep hill. When I returned, I jumped on the other Funiculaire to St-Just but there was nothing really there so I walked back to the Basilica and returned via the gardens. A lovely walk.

I recommend for those that cannot walk up to the hill to see Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Theatres Romains de Fourviere. Easy to buy ticket in the machine.
