Spend some time at the famous Place Bellecour, the starting point for the annual Festival of Lights (in December only) and home to a statue of Louis XIV (known as the Sun King), which has been watching over the Lyonnais (people of Lyon) and visitors from all over the world since the 1820s.

Service was great and we got off at a couple of spots and the pick time for the next bus was always on time - loved Lyon

Excellent way to find your way around the city, old and new bits. Definitely worthwhile, especially being able to get to the top of the hill and walk around the Roman Ruins and awesome Cathedral. the veiws from the top are amazing so plan to spend at least an hour or so up there.
