Take the finiculare up and enjoy the view, that's about it. Nice view out over the city and the river. Make sure to take the other finiculare down.

We walked a long way up the hill to this church as the funicular was not running. It was worth the walk. The church is beautiful and the city view is gorgeous.

Well I normaly visiting every main church, basilique or cathedral in place I visit but usually not making review about it. However this one was a nice surprise. Ceiling, columns and walls all are breathtaking and view from back yard to whole Lyon is also stunning. Worth to visit.

This is our first trip to Lyon, and we had a great first day with a walk up the the cathedral. Spectacular views and we took a challenging route walking up - worth the effort!

I think this basilica rivals the Notre Dame in Paris. It is that beautiful and has amazing views of the city of Lyon and the Rhone River below. Built after the French Revolution it was not stripped of its valuables and artworks making this much more beautiful inside than many of the other historic churches in France. The location atop the hillside gives it commanding views of the red tiled city below. It is also located near the amazing roman amphitheater. Highly recommended to visit.
