If you like the ancient Romans, you get a good dose of them here: two big well-preserved theatres and this fabulous museum that gives you insight into every aspect of life in what was the greatest city of Roman Gaul. Allow plenty of time because the museum is quite huge, but well organized so you don't feel overwhelmed. Only problem - and a serious one - is that the explanations are in very small type and often close to the ground; most have a summary or translation in English. To get there, take the St Just funicular from Old Lyon and get off at the first stop.
