France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Tourist Information, Lyon, France





The Tourist Information Office for Lyon is located at the Place Bellecour, on the Presqu'ile. Although it's easily recognized by its logo—the words Only Lyon and a lion—it's not that easy to find because two buildings on Place Bellecour bear this legend.

The actual tourist office is in the plainer building on the east side of the Place Bellecour. If you're looking at the front of the statue of Louis XIV on horseback, it's the one to your left.

The Tourist Information Office can provide maps and brochures, and you can also buy a Lyon City Card for one, two or three days. The card gets you free admission to many museums and provides unlimited access to Lyon's public transportation system (métro, bus, tram), as well as many other benefits. In addition, with the City Card you can enjoy guided tours of some areas, a visit to a silk workshop, a river cruise, and a guignol (traditional Lyonnais puppet) show. The card also offers discounts on some other activities. More...
