The Roman city of Lugdunum was created on the Fourvière hill two thousand years ago, and at its feet, caught between the Saône and Fourvière, the city grew from the early Middle Ages (from the year 800).

Vieux Lyon, comprising the neighborhoods of Saint George, Saint John and Saint Paul, offers visitors an architectural patchwork of nearly 2000 years of history. From its winding streets, sometimes thousands of years old, to its rich historical and religious heritage, a walk in the historic center of Lyon is a constant delight.
