Cozy and picturesque little stop along the road, why not give it a go? I enjoyed the the average waffles outside in the sun - in front of the beautiful lake. The checked out the ruins 1 minute walk away before hitting the dull state road E20 again. Full, refreshed and loaded with a small doze of cultural history... Recommended!

Delicious waffles first thing in the morning! the consistency is perfect: crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, with a generous dollop of cream and cloudberry jam. I also loved the whimsical selection of coffee cups. The café is located in a beautiful setting, just off the E20, definitely worth taking a short break!

Nice place by the lake with tasty ice cream. Didn't test the food or the waffles, but looked real good.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
