Very convenient way to move around in the city with city pass. I won’t say it is the cheapest way to getting the pass as most of us won’t visit too many museum during a few days trip . Do check up operating hours for museum , most museum closed on Monday and some closed on Tuesday .

If you want to go to Lyon, the Lyon Card is very worthwhile, simply because you can use local public transport, but apart from that there are many great offers, some of which are free, such as a guided tour of the city or a trip by boat. There are also discounts on certain activities. We loved it very much would love to come back in the future.

Lyon city pass is really great in terms of the activities offered. This allows you to do and see lots of different things (guided tours, boat tours, museums, etc.) Small downside: a pity that the free transport is not valid for 48 hours from the first validation as indicated on the site, but 2 days whatever the time of the first validation...
