Explore on foot the district of Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon). It is one of the largest areas of Renaissance architecture in Europe. Stroll through its cobbled streets, such as Rue St. Jean, where you will find a beautiful example of the famous “traboules” that people who make their trips to Lyon so much appreciate: covered passages built between the houses. At the end of Rue St.-Jean, is the majestic cathedral of Lyon, built between 1180 and 1480.
Climb the funicular to the top of the Fourvière hill. See the views of the city and the Rhone valley from the viewpoint of the Notre Dame de Fourvière Basilica. Search the ancient Roman amphitheater. It is one of the places where the festival of Nights of Fourvière is celebrated, a celebration of music, dance and theater.
Head over to La Croix-Rousse, a neighborhood located between the two rivers with a past marked by the silk industry. At the foot of the hill is the Place des Terreaux, a central square where the Town Hall, the Palace of San Pedro and the Bartholdi Fountain are located. Cross the river to the Parc de la Tête d'Or, a beautiful green area where you can visit a small zoo. Attend a ballet performance at the Lyon Opera. Nearby, Tete d'Or Park is a beautiful green space that houses a small zoo.
Do not miss the visit to the Lumière Institute. The film pioneers, Auguste and Louis Lumière, had their factories in this place. The cinematographic achievements of these brothers are exhibited in a museum. During the Lumière Festival, which takes place every year in October, you can watch classic films and attend exhibitions.
One of the best things you can do when traveling to Lyon is to taste its famous gastronomic panorama.
