Museum Of Gallo-roman Civilization Or The Odeon And The Roman Amphitheatre - Review

Fourviere Hill is where the history of Lyon is! If you’ve read the Asterix comics, then you know Lugdunum – Capital of the Gauls, because that’s what they called Lyon all that time ago. On this hill then, which once upon a time used to be the centre of Lyon, are three awesome attractions. The first of these is the museum – an architectural marvel constructed in such a manner that it blends right into the historic hill rather than stand out. You can barely tell it’s there from the outside, yet the spacious interior comprehensively details Lugdunum life from 43 BC to the early Christian era. The main collection, called the Five Centuries of Discovery are largely made up of objects, inscriptions, statues, currencies and ceramics, many of them over 2000 years old.

The Roman Theatre complex on the other hand is probably the city’s most visited attraction. It was dedicated to Emperor Augustus and can hold 4500 people; renovations now have converted that to 10000 – a necessary improvement. Why? Because every summer the nights here light up with Nuits de Forviere festival, a cultural highlight of Lyon. Close by is the small Odeon Theatre (regularly used for performances even now), and these together are one of the only two such pairs in Gaul.

You can cover the entire complex simply walking around. There will usually be some college students around, relaxing on the stairs. See if you can engage in conversation.

Museum Of Gallo-roman Civilization Or The Odeon And The Roman Amphitheatre, Lyon Reviews

Google+
  • Unique sightseeing spot in Lyon! I highly recommend. This would be wonderful spot to watch a show from and for children to experience as well. Friend recommended bringing a bottle of wine and enjoying the views.

  • You need to have a pair of comfortable shoes to walk around this site. The inside of museum is fine, but the roads of amphitheater are sometimes rough. Lovely scenary, worth going there.

  • Spectacularly good museum - amazing Roman relics both inside and outside, glorious architecture, and good job at contextualising/explaining the story of Gallo-Romans. Parts of the display are a bit dated and could do with re-labelling, and the lack of a café is a missed opportunity given the wonderful setting.

  • Really enjoyed the visit to the Gallo-Roman museum. There is a beautiful outdoor ampitheatre. Part of the ruins have been converted to a museum about the Gallo-Roman history of this region. The tiled murals are absolutely gorgeous. When we visited, there was a short-term exhibition on the Roman aqueducts. The museum is very close to the basilica. If you are very unfit or health is an issue then you should catch the bus or cable car up the hill asnit is quite steep. Otherwise, it is a fantastic walk through a rose garden.

  • Excellent museum with many works of art i.e. Mostly sculptures and mosaics. Entry to the theater ruins is a big bonus.
