  • A short walk from the Minimes Theatres Romains station. You can visit the nearby Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere afterwards.

  • Great theatres, great museum, great view, great place overall. Cheap museum (4€/person) but with more to see than most have energy for. Excellent exhibition with one small exception and that is very small signs and not consistent in english. The theatres outdoor may be missing a lot of structures compared to for an example the theater in Orange but you can still imagine the grandeur they once had. Overall a must visit if you like history/Roman time
  • Great museum! Astonishing view to the amphitheater!! In December 2021 there was a temporary exhibition about power in Roman times... amazing work!! Unlike the Beaux Arts museum this does have descriptions in English which I highly appreciated. Overall, this is a must visit museum in Lyon.
