A HUGE SUCCESS FOR TOURISM IN LYON

27 mar. 2012
 
Over half a million visitors visited the Greater Lyon Tourism Office in 2011: a great success for Lyon.
 

These great results from the Tourism Office, prove once again that Lyon has become a veritable weekend destination and even a summer holiday destination of choice, and the number of tourists is increasing across the year.

 

Tourism trips

Today, Lyon’s attracts tourists from well outside of Europe. In 2011 41% of all foreign visitors to the Tourism Office were not European.


With over 4500 things to do and see across the region, Lyon offers a wide range of activities: guided tours, museums and cultural events! And it’s all made easy with the Lyon city Card – the first offer of its kind in France making it possible to combine entries to the city’s museums, exhibitions and public transport.
