Phew.

Get the overview of Lyon, literally. The church on the hill is a central part of this great French city.

We weren't honeymooners, but there were lots of them taking in this view made for selfies. Came at sunset, were rewarded by a glowing Lyon stretched before us.

If the weather is sunny take the funiculaire to go up and see a panoramic view of the city. It is beautiful even though it is awfully crowded. Walk your way down to the old town, it is a nice walk.

An outstanding vantage point to see all of Lyon - a few typical touristy gift shops at the top, but see so much on the way up the hill to view the basilica

Walked up the the cathedral... got lost a couple of times, entered a construction zone but eventually arrived. Many old and interesting streets. I enjoy photography but I was there on business and didn't bring my camera. The view is wonderful..

I am so happy we found this hill. What a great view. It opened up Lyon for me. Helped me to fall in love with this city. Also, public bathrooms are here, so there is that. We ended up enjoying this view and then headed southwest to the Romain ruins and then walked down the hill via the public streets.... More
