Lyon Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Start your hop-on hop-off tour through Lyon at the Place Bellecour, the Lyon Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Jean Baptiste) or any of the other 12 stops on the route. As the open-top, double-decker bus transports you around town, hop on and off as many times as you like and wherever you like to see the best of Lyon at your own pace (full tour duration without stops: approximately 1.3 hours).

Spend some time at the famous Place Bellecour, the starting point for the annual Festival of Lights (in December only) and home to a statue of Louis XIV (known as the Sun King), which has been watching over the Lyonnais (people of Lyon) and visitors from all over the world since the 1820s. Visit the Basilica of Notre Dame de Fourvière, which was built high above the rooftops of Lyon and boasts a panoramic view of the city. Or hop off at the Mur Peint stop to admire impressive frescoes painted on several house facades.

The hop-on hop-off stops also include beautiful museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts (Musée des Beaux Arts), Old Lyon (Vieux Lyon) with its ancient Renaissance buildings, and Rue de la République, Lyon's main shopping street.

Excellent stops, on time

This was a great trip. We were able to get off in key places e.g., the Roman ruins, visit and take photos, then get back on the bus later in the day. I would gladly do this trip again.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

It's a nice way to see Lyon as there are a lot of hills and it gives you a great chance to see it all without too much walking. I managed to get some great shots and mostly from the bus. Great idea and well priced.

We purchased the 2 day bus tour and we're glad we did. We were able to see everything we wanted to see and had extra time to spend at the different stopping points. Everything worked out perfectly. We enjoyed our visit to Lyon. It was great!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

It is the only way to see this city. We loved the beautiful Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière the inside is the most opulent we have seen and the view of the city was magnificent. The ruins of Lugdunum, Fourviere Hill, Are worth a look too. We did the full loop first and then hopped off the bus at the sites we wanted to view.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014
