I first laid eyes on those wonderful murals while in a tour bus, and I knew from that first instant that visiting the site was going to be a lot of fun.
Best to pick up a map of the sites or take a tour which I think must exist.

It is also near the Silk Museum and a lovely little street market plus the Esplanade (good views over Lyon) is only 5 minutes away.
You get a great view from across the intersection, but even more insight to the clever use of perspective by getting up close.

Great for strolling through the streets with lovely crafts and wine shops as well as fascinating views over the Beaujolais countryside.
the view from the far end over the region is spectacular and the church, at the top of a lot of steps, is quaint and colorful.

Wonderful cobblestone streets - sneakers a must - delightful sights, wonderful food, friendly people, an abundance of color and scents and beauty.
The cobblestoned streets, the old facades, the view to the river, the steep stairs that lead to the Fourviere, the Guignol motives all around, and the cherry on top, the Saint Jean Cathedral, before taking the fun...

It originally means "traversing" pathways from what we learnt; the ones in Croix Rousse are very different looking but interesting as well from a historical point of view.
Give yourself plenty of time to explore and take it all in the sights and general ambience.

small square in the center of the city with an amazing fountain to stop for a rest and enjoy the view, amazing!
The square belongs to the zone classified as World Heritage UNESCO site for a good reason: it is so harmonious, so typical "The Presqu'île".

amazing paintings, artwork and spectacular city views, the climb on foot is steep, you can drive from the rear, but the effort of the climb is well rewarded.
Then you can relax in the neighbour garden arranged by the ruins of St. Etienne baptistery or go around the square in the front of the cathedral and admire the view of Fourviere hill.

I love walking up in the montée de la Croix Rousse because as you slowly walk up to the top ( where the view of Lyon is breathtaking) you discover many galleries and art stores.

The French sculptor F.Bartholdi personally selected la Place des Terreaux (city center), right between l’hôtel de ville (the City Hall) and the Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, to be the site of his fontaine.

This may be the most underrated site in Lyon! Terrific show summarizing the history of silk industry in Lyon focusing on the development of the loom.
