The city has planned everything to make life easier for tourists! She imagined the Lyon City Card, available for a duration of one day or four days. It offers the possibility of visiting the city’s museums and of using public transport. Take advantage of your stay to meet the big names in art, in Beaux-arts museum. And if you like Natural History, go for the Confluence museum.
The heights of Lyon
The advantage of Lyon is that it is surrounded by hills on which you can dominate the entire city and admire incredible viewpoints. start with la Croix Rousse which was punctuated by the comings and goings of expert craftsmen in the silk weaving that made the reputation and wealth of Lyon. Then climb to the basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière. It can be climbed on foot for the more adventurous, or via the funicular to avoid getting tired!
Lyon is a big city which conceals districts very rich in heritage. It has also been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll through the traboules, admire St. John’s Cathedral and stroll along the banks of the river. We also like livelier places like Bellecour, the Part-Dieu or the Brotteaux.
