Having the card saved to,e and money. There was no waiting to get in places. Using the metro was streamlined tremendously. Everyone who goes to visit Lyon should get o e!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2011

superb. it'll be great if we can get refund for public transport (which is covered in the card) that we spend to get the card in the Tourism Office
