Lyon Croix-Rousse City Tram Tour with Audio Guide

    What to Expect
    The small train of Croix-Rousse is running through this so atypical district. Lyon City Tram’s goal is to make you discover the “colline des Canuts” in a different way. Its design was not chosen at random, because it looks like the historical cable car of Croix-Rousse.

    The tram with its panoramic roof will allow you to discover this village in the town and see the “Trois Gaules Amphithéâtres”, and admire several painted walls like the “Fresque Végétale Lumière”, the “Mur des Canuts” and the famous “Fresque des Lyonnais”. The tour lasts about one hour and is audio guided in 5 languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian and German.

    Nice one hour tour of mostly the North side. This will probably get you into some neighborhoods you would have missed. Sadly, no off and on is included. Discount with the Lyon City Pass.

    It was a pleasant ride but what we saw was dispppointing. Only saw one of the frescos and croix rousse itself is a bit run down. Most of the trip was past boarded up buildings and dusty streets

    The tram covered the more historic places. The bus stopped running at a location in town and we were told to disembark , wait a half hour, and then re-board another bus that was simply sitting at that location. We opted to leave the tour at that point. It was not worth the

    Very good. Nice information about the points of the city and some historical facts. The only problem in my opinion is that sometimes the audio comes after we have passed the building that they are talking about. Beautiful sightseeing. I recomend.

    Hello, thank you for sharing your review with us. I understand your feedback about the difference of time between what your hear and what you see. The Lyon City Tram is running in the city center and it's sometimes difficult for the driver to launch the explanation at the perfect time due to demonstrations, accidents, traffic... However we hope that you enjoyed your trip to the Croix-Rousse!

    It is a good use of an hour and value for money. A decent audio description of the history and views. If it is full it might be a tight squeeze however. I would recommend you book a specific time as you get priority. However a nightmare to find the start. Literally you

    Hello, thank you for your feedback. We are aware that the stop is not easy to find. Our starting point had to be moved following the many works on the streets. The signs at the stop is here to help our travelers and indeed you have to validate your tickets before boarding on the tram in order to welcome you in the best possible conditions.
