What you'll do

I propose to discover the hills of Lyon, known as Fourvière and Croix-Rousse. Both are located near the center of the city and occupy a very important place in the history, culture and identity of the Rhone city. These two hills each have a nickname specific to their activity. Fourviere, which overlooks the west of the city, is often called the "praying hill". Looking to the north of Lyon, we find the Croix-Rousse, also known as the "working hill". The walk begins at the Opera de Lyon, in the beginning of the Croix Rousse hill. Through its slopes we can enjoy stunning views of Lyon.We will visit monuments and churches such as Gros Caillou, Knowing the biggest secret in Lyon as also know as Fishbones, the esplanade of the Grand Cote and small hidden treasures such as the baroque church of Sant Bruno de Chartreux or to show you a hidden examples of the Underground art that has been imposed on the Croix Rousse walls during the last years. The chartreux gardens will serve us to descend to the Saône River and start to ascend to Fourviere where we will enjoy the spectacular eyesight of Lyon, the Fourviere Basilica, the Galeo Roman odeon, or the impressive Curiosities Garden.
