Formerly known as Lugdunum

Located in the current french city of Lyon, Lugdunum was a very important Roman city in Roman The ruins of the ancient amphitheater and the various exhibits in the museum next to it tell the story of a vibrant Roman city, important to the empire for several centuries. The original city was located west of the confluence of the Rhône and Saône, on the Fourvière hills.

Last september I had the opportunity to visit again the city for a second time and on this occasion I was able to spend a good amount of time exploring this area which is undoubtedly one of the most interesting in Lyon.
