The Croix-Rousse district

This picturesque district is located on top of the Croix Rousse hill, overlooking the city of Lyon, and was designated World Heritage site by UNESCO.

The charm of this district is in its narrow, sloping streets. The area was once inhabited by silk workers known as “Canuts”. Today, the neighbourhood boasts alternative culture and is home to both bohemian artists and students.

Fourvière and the Basilica

A symbol of Lyon and a key element of the city's heritage, the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière was built in the 19th century, drawing on Romanesque and Byzantine architecture.

The basilica offers impressive views of the entire city. Gallo-Roman ruins of the ancient city of Lugdunum can still be visited on the hill.

The Old Lyon

The medieval and Renaissance quarter is located at the foot of the Fourvière hill. The Old City of Lyon was built around three religious temples: Saint-Jean Cathedral (Saint John), Saint Georges Church (Saint George), and Saint Paul Church.

Its narrow streets decorated with colourful façades and typical taverns lead visitors into the cultural life of the city.
