I found city pass to be particularly helpful for organizing. We activated our cards, which we picked up from the info office, at around 1pm to take a river boat trip to Barber Island, then squeezed in the Museum of Fine Arts before taking transport to see a game at Lyonnaise Olympic Stadium, and to our AIRBNB, after. In the morning we hit the Lumiere Museum, and the subway to Vieux-Lyon. We happened upon the museum of cinema and miniatures, and that was a pleasant treat to unexpectantly arrive at, before our 24 hours ended.
It was extremely hot, especially in closed front areas of the tram, but it was very informative and enjoyable otherwise. It would be very nice, however, if one could get off at the « plateau » to wander around, rather than having to stay on for entire circuit. I did get ripped off money-wise with this online ticket purchase where I didn’t see the option to buy a two-day hop on and hop off bus pass that also included the tram excursion! That’s why my value for money rating is so low below!
A good way to see the heart of Lyon, but not a huge amount to see. The commentary was very useful though. Booking a specific time is really useful as you have priority over all other ticket types and are guaranteed a seat. Instructions to find the start point need to reflect the fact you need to go into shop by the bus stop and have tickets validated before getting on.
It was easy to use once we understood we had to convert our on line application at the tourist office to a card before we could use the transport systems. We therefore bought an additional tube pass unnecessarily. The tourist office were superb at sorting us out!!
Highly recommend getting this guide! We took advantage of everything offered that we had time to do on the 1-day pass. Only criticism is that the guided walking tour spent too much time going through too many traboules.
