Board the green line city bus for a customizable experience. Marvel at the sights of Old Lyon with stops at Place Bellecour, Terreaux, the murs peints, Palais de Justice, Vieux-Lyon, Perrache, Musée des Confluences, Berges du Rhône, Théâtres Gallo-Romains, Fourvière, and Parc des Hauteurs.

Listen along to the onboard audio guide for unique insights into the buildings you pass and hop off wherever you wish to. Don't forget to get off the bus at Fourvière for a magical stroll through history with your included self-paced tour.

Download the app and begin your journey on the Esplanade de Fourvières. Gaze at the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, majestically placed on top of the hill. Visit the Gallo-Roman Museum for a look at ancient objects from Lyon's Roman times and walk around the open-air theater.

Take in all the staples of the Sacred Hill, such as the ruins, viaduct, park, and even a 19th-century cloister. End your audio tour at Place des Minimes, a historic square where Christian martyrs were beheaded during Roman times.

The Hop on Hop off Bus was great! Beware though, the self guided audio tour of Fourveire is not downloadable as advertised. You must have wifi to access the audio tour on site. Very disappointing to find this out after purchasing the tour.
