  • The Old Lyon with its late Gothic and Renaissance buildings, the St-John cathedral, and its narrow pedestrian streets.
  • The Fourviere basilica on top of the hill, with its Disney-movie-like exterior, its rich interior decorations and its dominating view on the city.
  • The “traboules”, a kind of public indoor passageway between streets in the Old Lyon and Croix-Rousse districts.
  • The twelfth-century austere Romanesque St-Martin-d'Ainay basilica (north of Perrache trainstation).
  • The Rhone left bank, a very nice walk ranging from the southernmost part of the city to the northern Parc de la Tete-d'Or and beyond.
  • The Place des Terreaux (Hotel de Ville metro station), on which are situated the city hall and the Palais St-Pierre which houses a large museum and a very refreshing public garden.
