The City Card was wonderful. It got us into a lot of places and allowed us on all public transportation (rail/buses) for free.
Great purchase. maps and information helped a lot. access to attractions n free transport saved lots!
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!
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.
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
We went there for a day trip during our visit to Switzerland. Great value and the cruise was very informative.
Completely satisfied with the Lyon Card. The Tourist office was helpful and made the trip great! Prompt efficient service.
This was great value, we used it on all public transport, all Museums, exhibitions walking tour and a Cruise up the river. Very user friendly and efficient.
Good value and even more so if you can get organised with planning. This i did not do but by asking the right questions at the Tourist Centre where I collected the card I still think great value. (The boat cruise is fantastic and recommendation to spend time in old part of the city across the river and up to the Cathedral made for a memorable day)
Was in some ways dissapointed with it as we had booked a 3-day pass for a 4-day stay and only found later that we could not use it on public transport on arrival as you have to travel to the tourist info centre to get it validated. This meant paying to get to the hotel and either taking all our luggage with us to the TIC en-route or going to the hotel and out again!!!!!! For the cost per day (£22) for 2 persons, you have to pull in a lot to make it worth it, especially as we did not spend any on day one. The only way we got some of it back was to travel on the bus on our 4th day to the station in the morning, saving around 3 euros each, so in actual fact it was nearer £30 per day over the 2 remaining full days left to spend. The big bonus was the freedom to just jump on and off the local transport and go on the river boat and into one of the museums. I am not certain I would have bothered with the museum though if I had not felt that I had to spend it on something! I do not think that it is worth what it costs do do that though, so would not buy one next time.
I do not think a 2 day pass is worth buying if in town for that short of time. You can walk to most all sites if you stay in central Lyon. The Lyon City Card did entitled you to a free walking tour which was informative and appreciated. There was also a hour long boat ride (nice for photos) included in the Lyon City Card.
