Lyon is the perfect location for sightseeing trips. The city boasts a wealth of historic and cultural tourist attractions, all located within a beautiful setting.

There are also many attractions that are particularly attractive for families, including Lyon's parks and gardens and its traditional puppet theatres.

To make the most of your visit, it's well worth doing a little advance planning. Below you will find Lyon's main tourist attractions and where to find them.

On top of Fourvière, this hilltop amphitheatre was constructed during the reign of the Roman Emperor, Tiberius. During its long history, it has been used as a forum of entertainment, a place to swear loyalty to Rome, and a place of execution.

Silk has been manufactured in Lyon for some 400 years and this tradition continues today in a small number of workshops. Attractions include both demonstrations and displays, with this popular silk workshop allowing visitors to see the techniques used here to create fine silk objects.

Lyon's main church has been situated on this site in some form or other since the 4th century. The building that you can see today was built between the 12th and 14th centuries and is a fine example of how churches evolve through the centuries. Its astronomical clock, featuring the moving figures of the Annunciation and a lone bugle player, is always popular with tourists. Listen out for its chimes at 12:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00.

Open hours: Monday to Friday - 08:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 19:30; Saturday and Sunday (and holidays) - 08:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:00.

The childhood home of Auguste and Louis Lumière pays homage to their early work in creating cinematography. The attraction's exhibits include some of the cameras that the famous brothers used to shoot their first films, together with other photographic paraphernalia. Film shows are programmed for most evenings.
