-Lyon is a renowned cultural city. The main sights include:

-  * 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.
