Full description
At an altitude of nearly 300 meters, from north to south and east to west, the aptly named Parc des Hauteurs offers various viewpoints over the city. Its unique geographical spot allows you to better visualize and understand how the city has grown and developed over its 2000-year history.

This guided sightseeing ‘stroll-tour’ is ideal for days with sunny weather. It generally ends at the heart of the Gallo-Roman site, featuring one of largest theaters that has ever existed in Ancient Gaul.

This unique tour will allow you to discover the special history of the shrine of Our Lady of Fourvière. For nearly 400 years, both the inhabitants of Lyon and those of elsewhere have been making pilgrimages here to the Virgin Mary. Indeed, throughout the history of Lyon, the Virgin has proven to be a staunch and unfailing protectress against various instances of great misfortune. Play the game and try to decipher the superb mosaics featured in this hilltop monument cherished by the inhabitants of Lyon.
