Tour was great. I just wished they had given us time to stop and see the Amphitheater instead of just driving by it.

Our excursion was "Panoramic Lyon".
Sail Date: November 2018
Our excursion was "Panoramic Lyon". It included a stop at Notre Dame de Fourviviere. The views of the rivers and the city were incredible. Seeing the old mixed in with the new is very interesting. Lyon is such a diverse city.

First time visitor.
Sail Date: October 2017
First time visitor. The city is too big for a simple tour, so it’s on the list for a re-visit with a longer stay.

Lyon was a bit overwhelming, but I enjoyed the basilica and cathedral. Our guide recommended a couple of places to get food-we got croissants (of course) and chocolate. I was struck by the sameness of the architecture as far as we could see-it was interesting but a sea of the same shades of gray. Read Less
