Meander through the Croix-Rousse district

This small tourist train toils up the slopes of the historic Croix-Rousse district with its unusual charm. Lyon City Tram shows you the hill of the canuts from an unusual perspective. And the vehicle's design was not chosen at random either: it resembles Croix-Rousse's former cable car nicknamed Ficelle by the locals.

After departing from the heart of the city centre, this little train with its panoramic roofs scales the hills of the Croix-Rousse district to reveal its unusual architecture, with the amphitheatre of the three Gauls and several painted walls on the way: the "Fresque Végétale Lumière", the "Mur des Canuts", a painted wall devoted to Lyon's silk workers, and the trompe-l'oeil painting of Lyon's most famous inhabitants.

A special architecture

The sheer size of the Jacquard looms meant Croix-Rousse hill buildings had to be designed with ceilings over 4m high and large windows for better lighting. The ‘traboules’ covered passageways protected the silk from the rain during transport.
