France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Lyon City Card, Lyon, France
If you're planning to visit several museums and sites, this card is for you!




The Lyon City Card provides free or reduced entrance to a variety of activities in Lyon, and also includes access to the city's extensive transportation network.

You can purchase a card for one, two, or three days. I managed to visit three museums, take a river cruise on the Saône, and ride the métro and trams. I also took the funiculaire to the top of Fourvière Hill.

Other options include guided tours, self-guided tours, guignol (puppet) shows, and more. You can also benefit from discounts at various performances and things like bike rentals or electric taxi tricyles.

So consider your itinerary, and decide if a Lyon City Card can help you appreciate this fascinating city. Note that the pass operates on a 24-hour day for museums and events, but a calendar day for transportation, so plan accordingly.

You can buy the Lyon City Card at the Tourist Information Office at Place Bellecour, or on line.
