While staying in Decines, most sightseeing itineraries take tourists into Lyons. The cobblestone streets of Lyons' medieval quarter are a nice place to wander around, and there are Roman ruins along with a Gallo-Roman Museum near the Fourviere Basilica.
However, the Basilica itself is the dominating attraction in Lyons. This religious structure was built in the 1800s on a hill overlooking the city. The basilica features striking stained glass windows and beautiful mosaics. Climb the northern tower for superb panoramic views of Lyons and the surrounding countryside.
The Croix-Rousse hillside is home to a series of quaint silk workshops. The city was once well-known for its silk industry; and this part of Lyon together with the medieval quarter have earned a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
