Guided tours Fourvière Vieux-Lyon
Tour proposed by Lyon tourisme et Congrès

Travel through time, styles and eras ... From Lugdunum to Lyon, 2000 years are watching you!

The esplanade of Fourvière offers a magnificent uninterrupted view of Lyon.

The discovery of the basilica, one of the symbols of the city, immerses you in the late 19th century. Don’t walk by without taking a look inside, because the interior is just as remarkable as the outside.

The tour brings you from the Basilica to the Gallo-Roman site where there is a great view of the entire Peninsula. Do not forget that Lugdunum was founded on the hill of Fourvière in 43 BC.

Your walk then takes you down towards Old Lyon. At the bottom of the hill, the Renaissance town stretches out along the banks of the river Saône. Walk through a few of the narrow streets and the squares and delve into the "traboules" to discover hidden courtyards, galleries and wells...

Let's hop on a "ficelle" !

Lyon and its two hills couldn't do without their funicular railways! Here they are known as the "ficelles" (strings). Of the 5 in operation during the 19th century, only 2 are still in activity: from Saint-Jean, they dive into the hills in direction of Fourvière and l'Antiquaille!
