It is fantastic value. I have visited a number of museums, taken the metro and buses and I even did a our of Old Lyon that was very informative and interesting. I would highly recommend it.

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.

We purchased the 3-day pass. Over the course of the three days we visited only half a dozen of the included attractions, but combined with the transport pass, we still got good value out of the Lyon City Card. What purchasing the card did for us was give us lots of information about Lyon and lots of options so that we could tailor our sightseeing to our interests. It also encouraged us to go to a couple of attractions that, if we had to pay specifically for that attraction, we may not have gone but as it was included in the price of the Card, we went along.
We would certainly recommend the Lyon City Card.
