We found the 3 day Lyon card a cost effective and easy way to travel around the city. Scanning the card on Public transport was easy and time saving. Museums too. And it included a boat trip and walking tour. Excellent value for money

I am a great believer in getting the City Card for cities we go to for the first time. First, you get the transportation card included. In Lyon, we used mostly the Metro which gets you anywhere fast! Second, you get a City Bus Tour Hop-on-Hop-off type which takes you everywhere in the city and you get a flavor for the various sections and what you might like or dislike about them. We also got the 2 hour guided tour of the Old Town which was probably our favorite tour of the whole 3 weeks we spent in France Nice and Paris were our other destinations. We got free entrance to many fascinating museums and even to a puppet show and museum. It's great how the puppets started in dentistry. This card is perfect for the first time visitor to Lyon.

I was very sad that this card did not include the on/off bus. It was very confusing because we bought this specifically because of the on/off bus. Imagine our surprise when they told us at the bus that the card did not have this feature.

The Lyon City card is the best deal for your money. City transportation, museums, boat rides, and just plain convenience makes this expense easy to justify. I recommend this card because Lyon does have hills, and sooo many places you will want to visit. This was the first item I purchased before my visit and I would do it again. Cheers!

Good value and a great way to get to appreciate this wonderful city. Lyon is a great place to spend several days visiting. The city has it all. Great food and wine, museums, transportation system and best of all the friendly people of Lyon. We used the public transit system which is very efficient and visited a number of sights including the Musée des Confluences interesting museum to visit for half a day or more. The museum has a great restaurant located just outside the main building and the Musée des Beaux Arts de Lyon, which also has a wonderful collection and a lovely outdoor restaurant. Great place to stop and re-energize after a few hours of visiting the museum.

This was well worth the money and great way to take in Lyon in one day. We picked up our card at the Lyon tourism office, and it was one of the most well-organized and beautiful office we have ever been in. The people there were very helpful and gave us lots of tips for how to take full advantage of the card. We took advantage of the hop on/hop off bus tour and we visited 2 museums. We also took advantage of the extremely well organized and easy to use public transportation system to save some walking time. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Lyon.

The city card was well worth it. If you're only spending a few days in the city I would highly reccommend this, as this saves you having to worry about buying the correct tickets for the correct destinations constantly. It not only gets you onto the public transport system but also into museums.
