The Fourviere Hill is a characteristic area of Lyon City that is easily accessible. During the ascent, you will find a very interesting, populated area with a strong cold air. Even in some parts of Lyon, you’ll also find purely natural sites lined with more trees and without major construction. You’ll run up to the Gallo-Roman Theatre and reach the top with the Basilica of Fourvière and the metal tower.
The Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde in Marseille is small and its interior is reminiscent of Byzantine churches by their color; from the ceiling hung a votive fun with boats and marine motifs. On the lower floor is the crypt, only recommended for anyone fond of religious tourism. The entire complex is crowned by a huge sculpture of the Virgin Mary and the child Jesus.
