Impressive Roman theatre near the top of Fourviere Hill. This is free to the public, and definitely worth a stroll through. You will see the theatre and remains of houses. The Museum is located here as well.

Beautifully set up museum with incredible displays. The ancient theatre ruins are breathtaking. The museum is well laid out and accommodated all the well behaved and very engaged young school children. The museum and ruins are a must see for anyone visiting Lyon!

Something everyone visitng Lyon should see. The structure remings me of the Colosium in Rome, but the surroundings are so different.
