Fourviere Hill is perhaps Lyon's most well known destination, a perfect combination of culture, adventure, and a bit of history thrown in for good measure. Take one of the two still operating funicular lines to the top, or better yet, challenge yourself to a scenic hike up the hill's (relatively) steep paths. Once there, you'll be treated to not only the best view in the city, but also to a series of historic city landmarks that provide plenty of structural variety in a relatively small area. Check out the enormous Romanesque/Byzantine architecture of Lyon's Basilica Notre Dame de Fourviere, the 86 meter tall Tour Metallique (which bears an uncanny resemblance to a much more popular tower in Paris), or the ancient Roman Amphitheater that, believe it or not, still hosts annual cultural events. Once you've had your share of sight seeing, treat yourself to a beer at one of the town's quaint pubs or restaurants and bask in the satisfaction of a day well spent.
