A walk around the city will give a lot of unforgettable experiences. You could see beautiful historic buildings and interesting monuments at every step in Lyon. One of the most popular excursions remains the tour to Notre-Dame de Fourviere. It was built in the second half of the 19th century; during its existence it has changed its original look completely. The architectural style of the basilica is very special; it represents a unique combination of Christian and Byzantine traditions. The top of one of Basilicaâ€™s towers is equipped with a viewing platform from which you can admire the panorama of the city.
Amphitheatre Gallo-Romain is located on the hill of FourviĂ¨re. Its construction took place during the reign of Tiberius Emperor. In ancient times there were large-scale entertainment and other community events on that site. The Museum of history is an important attraction that canâ€™t be ignored.
The collection represented in the museum covers the large-scale period from the early Middle Ages to the 19th century. During the tour, visitors will learn about the most important events that have influenced the fate of the city. The building, which houses the museum, is also of great interest. It is considered one of the most beautiful Renaissance monuments in the city. Nearby is another interesting institution, the Puppet Museum.
