After you take the funicular up the Fourvière hill, see all of Lyon and maybe the Alps (on a sunny day) from behind the Basilique - it's gorgeous.
A travelogue will feature the 180° panorama (coming very soon...)
FOURVIÈRE This is where you will find you roman ruins as well as the Basilica, a neo-gothic church. On top of the Fourvière hill is where you can see Lyon shrink to 180 degree view.
Picture below is Fourvière Basilica perched up on the hill.
The best view of Lyon comes from the Fourvier hill. It is also some good excercise as the hike takes a bit of time to go up to the top, where the church is located.
