J'ai pris le pass une journée mais je n'avais pas le temps de faire ce que j'avais prévu malheureusement, c'est beaucoup trop court.. J'ai fais 2 musées dont un gratuit et l'autre avec une réduction + pris un velo'v qu'il fallait que je paye 5€ alors que c'était marqué que la 1re heure était gratuite il me semble... Je le reprendrais surement la prochaine fois mais avec plusieurs jours.. c'est intéressant mais seulement sur plusieurs jours...

Easy to use, and great with a 24 hr plan

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.

So worth it!

Bought a 2 day pass, and it was a wonderful investment. The City Card allows free admission to so many museums in Lyon! The unlimited access to public transportation was especially helpful as it rained a lot while I was visiting, and it was nice to not have to worry about the cost. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting!
