Dear art lover,

After being consults in Germany for many years i am pleased to now be the consult of the Lyon City Trotters Group!

For my first event I invite you to visit the Lugdunum Museum and Roman theatres of Lyon that is free on the 1st Sunday of the Month.

"The museum and the theaters are located on the slopes of Fourvière Hill, on the very site where the Roman city of Lugdunum was founded in 43 B.C..

The idea of creating a museum to house objects related to the Roman city of Lyon was first discussed in the thirties. But it wasn't until the sixties that the project took shape and was entrusted to the architect Bernard Zehrfuss.

Zehrfuss was responsible for the idea of burying the building so that it would fit smoothly into the exceptional setting around it and would not "offend the professionalism of my Roman colleagues". Construction began in Protected content . The museum was inaugurated on November 15, Protected content

After the tour we can go to one of Lyon's Café to have a drink together.

I am looking forward seeing you for this event.
