I took the 1-hour cruise around the Ile Barbe. This cruise offers nice views of the city from the river and it is very informative. The well-informed guide explains the background of Lyon and its sights that you pass by.

What a terrific way to learn about this city. The boat ride is a perk with the Lyon City Card, and worth every cent. You'll see a side of the city you wouldn't ordinarily see: don't miss thus opportunity!

Loved this trip and loved the crew - the bilingual guide was excellent. The boat was clean and the propulsion was electric so not too noisy.
