We purchased the Lyon City Card (LCC) for 24 hours and it was great value. There is a great range of things to see with it, most good and some not to my taste but the LCC meant I wasn’t disappointed that I had paid individual admission. We used it for public transport and attractions - make sure you have the physical card so you can touch on for transport. The tourism staff were really helpful too. Be sure to take the river boat cruise - we did the city one - and take the short funicular ride to the Roman Theatre and museum. Another highlight was the History of Lyon museum located next to the puppet museum. We got our moneys worth.

We are family of 4 people (2 kids over 10 years old). We bought 4 cards for 48hrs. We used the card and visited a lot of places for free entrance. When buying this card, we were also not stressed about buying the public transport tickets.
Highly recommended!

We loved our month in Lyon. Rachel was friendly and knowledgable. Her advice gave us activities to remember and experiences that have made Lyon our favourite city in France.

Had four very enjoyable days in Lyon. An excellent, well-placed Airbnb in the old town.
Staff at Tourism Office very helpful and we bought the City Card for 24 hours, giving us access to most museums and all public transport, plus a sightseeing boat trip that included the confluence of the Saône and the Rhône. The Museum of Cinema & Miniature and the Gadagne museums make for good family visits, while old Lyon, the Basilica at Fourvière and the Parc de la Tête d'Or are also well worth a visit. A great range of not-too-expensive restaurants too, justifying Lyon's traditional reputation as a centre of gastronomic excellence. We also found the people friendly and welcoming.

As a family of four this worked really well for us. We took the metro, visited 4 museums and took the metro, funicular, bus and tram. A boat ride was included as well which we enjoyed.

In principle, the idea of a card giving free transport, access to museums etc is good. In reality unless you get the card at 9am in the morning to fit in as much as you can, then you may not get good value. Firstly we drove into Lyon to one of the park and ride near a metro. Unless you order this card long before you need it and have it delivered to a hotel or other place, you must then pay for the metro in order to go pick up your card in the center of Lyon. On the day we used it, at tourist info, they didnt tell us that some museums were offering free entry in order for people to get out of the heat. Our main use for the transport was using the funicular to get up and down to the basillica and getting the metro back to the car.

We visited the office for some advice with what best to do with our City card. The young lady behind the desk , Fatima , couldn’t have been more helpful. She booked us on 3 different activities. The 1 hour walking tour, which was very interesting. Our guide was Marie , who was very good.
We were also booked on the boat trip which took us north on the Soane, which was really nice. Finally, we went on the tour of the Norte Dame of Fourvière Basilica. You get taken to the rooftops and the views are spectacular. The tour lasts for over an hour and there are many stairs to climb, but we think it was well worth the effort. Only drawback for us, was that the tours in the Basilica are in French only, which may not be a surprise to many. Regardless of that, we would recommend the tour.

We visited the Lyon Tourist Office and was very well looked after by Rachel, who explained clearly all the options on the Lyon Card, gave some recommendations on routes and what to look out for and booked us onto a couple of the included tours.

We would like to do more tours and will visit Rachel again to book.

We visited the tourist office in Lyon and talked to Prisca. She was very friendly and gave us some very helpful advice on how to get around Lyon on public transportation and about museums. She saved us a lot of time and money with her advice. Thanks you Prisca!
