beautiful french quarters. walked around the area and our friends showed us the beautiful tall and very fascinating murals on some backstreets. these are definitely worth seeing and taking pictures with yourself in the scene!

Disappointed. Nice view of the city, but not many shops. Seemed almost deserted.
We did stop at a Roman ruins on the way down which was very nice although fenced off.
I'd recommend it for the view of the city, but not much else.

worth the walk up the hill. the vibe reminded me a little of chorlton, manchester, only this place has a great fresh food market on a sunday (maybe other days too?)

We walked up here to visit the Roman amphitheatre we had spotted on our map. The Roman ruins were a disappointment but we really enjoyed walking around the streets here. It is definitely less touristy that Vieux Lyon but it has as many interesting buildings and some nice bars and restaurants to visit. It is also a lot less crowded. As you climb up you can get some great views of the city and Fourviere.

With its food market, traboules and little shops, its a very relaxing place to spend time far away from the busy central area of Lyon!
