You can opt for a short funicular ride that costs around 2 euro (and totally not worth it) or opt for budgeting stairs.
You won’t be able to miss marvelous Basilique de Fourviere built 19th century and dedicated to Virgin Mary, who saved the city from a cholera epidemic back in 1823. The famous Festival of Lights is held annually on December, the 8th with billions of lights set all around the city in her honor.
The decor inside is breathtaking with walls covered with vivid mosaics and stained glass windows. Don’t miss the crypt on the ground floor which is less ornamented, yet amazingly beautiful too.
Check out the viewpoint right behind Basilique de Fourviere to get the best view on Veux Lyon orange tile rooftops and sparkling Saone River that flows around the Old City.
