    Remnant of the exposition of 1894, the metallic Tower of Fourvière has long housed a restaurant and a belvedere. Since the tower serves as a relay and welcomes more visitors. It remains a curiosity near the Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière.

    Fourvière is not the most interesting. The lyonnais are proud, it is higher than the Eiffel Tower. Indeed, if measured from the level of the sea, it is higher... It is difficult, but nothing is done to highlight. There is so much splendid to see on the plateau of Fourvière, that his destination remained utility (communications, observation) and has nothing to do with the elegance of the resplendent "Grande Dame".

    I saw her up close because we visited the basilica but no big deal. Better see it lit up at night

    From a distance looks the smaller version of the Eiffel Tower. Beautifully lit at night time.

    Seeing this tower was my best experience; ever. The Eiffel tower is just a rip-off. Its the best thing ever build out of metal. The perfect symbiosis of metal and tower penetrates the sky like no other object created by mankind. The only bad thing is the Notre dame de fouviere blocking the view and distracting.

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
