This is an amazing, well maintained area of Roman ruins from early AD years. Of all the architecture in the Lyon area, this is the best. I wish I could be here for concerts as I understand the acoustics and experience are wonderful.

If you happen to be in Lyon, in the south of France, this is another must see place, dating back to the time Lyon was Lugdunum the capital of the Gauls. It is rather easy to find, at the very foot of the Fourvière hill, there are road signs everywhere to show you the way. At the beginning it's not... More

This Roman Theatre must have been restored quite a bit. That is good, since it is usable now again - but it makes it a wee bit boring. Worth going for a look in case you pass by, but not necessary to travel across the city for it.

Modern museum with a very good layout and loads to see. The amphitheatres themselves are stunning and it is great value.

Take the funicular to see the basilica, and then walk across to here. Entry is free. Well worth a visit and to walk on paths on which the Roams walked 2000 years ago.

How amazing to have a Roman amphitheatre of this quality still there for all to see and enjoy! Very steep climb up the hill to see it but so worth it. Forget driving – the roads are packed
