    Tough hike but pleasant ride
    We would have preferred to hike up to the ruins but could not be sure we were going the right way, and the climb was very steep, but the streets of old town were interesting and very old. We ended up taking the funicular and it was cool. You can tell some of the ruins were restored but there was enough of the really old stuff that, if you let yourself imagine hard, could get the feel of ancient times. And of course, the view from up there of the city should not be missed.

    Roman amphitheater
    A beautiful Roman amphitheater on the hill next to Lyon. Entrance is free and best way to get here is the furnicular to the Church at the top of the hill. It's a short walk down the street. It's amazing to think that this place has existed since the Roman times. Nearby is a museum which we did not visit.

    Large amphitheatre and museum
    Went on the funicular railway towards St Just. Large amphitheatre which has some nice views, but seen a lot bigger and better. However the new museum is well worth a visit. Loads of displays over 5 levels. Go from the top to bottom. Impressive building.

These ruins have stood the test of time remarkably well, and we enjoyed wandering around & imagining what it would have been like back then.
There are also great views across Lyon.

These Roman ruins are so impressive, and the fact that they are free to walk around in makes it even better. There is lots of information about them on plaques around the site and you can really imagine how it all looked in Roman times.

The museum was a welcome break from the heat outside, and was also full of interesting artefacts and stories. It was also super cheap (and children U18 are free).

The only thing really missing is a small kiosk to buy a drink and perhaps more information on how they discovered the theatres.

We only visited the ruins and not the museum. The ruins are free and were uncrowded. I do not recommend walking up from town..instead public transport is the way to go. There were great views of Lyon.

I was looking forward to seeing this place. It is very interesting to walk around and go up and down this historical place. The staircases are quite rough, so it is better to wear a good pair of walking shoes.
