Lovely walk through ancient gardens and ruins Mar 18, 2011
We took this walk on a Sunday, which meant that many places were closed, but on the other hand, we walked around the amazing antiques fair which is set up at weekends in Vieille Lyon. You come to this beautiful part of town after crossing both the Rhône and the Saône rivers, and you need to get here in order to take the funiculaire to Notre Dame de Fourviere. This funiculaire takes you also to the Roman Ruins Théâtres Gallo-Romains (where there is a museum), but you must take it first to the right, come back (no extra payment is needed as the tickets are valid for 2 hours) and then go to the Basilique. The station is at the foot of a hill where you start your walk up, through beautiful rose gardens where people take their children to play, tourists stroll and sit down to read their maps, and although it is quite steep, we found it very enjoyable. On top there's the amazing church, a museum of religious art, and the gardens of the church, where you can have a coffee and a full view of the whole of Lyon. It's a great plan for people who are energetic and not so interested in shopping.
