Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.

  • Very well curated museum which explains exactly how print developed through history and the influence that the printed word (and picture) had had on our lives. Free with the fantastic Lyon City Card.  more »

  • Went to this place using the Lyon city card (which is worth it btw). The place is okay but perhaps a bit dull if you are not ultra keen on old dusty books ! There are some interesting prints though. I only recommend if you are into that sort of stuff.
  • Amazingly presented, detailed information about printing and media. I would recommend it to everyone not just people in the visual communucation industry. There are a lot of interesting facts to learn about. It takes about 3.5-4 hours to get through all of the museum..
  • Probably the best museum with very interesting facts on the history of printing. You'll see how this influenced many of our habits today. The visit is 4 to 5 hours long if you want to read and take your time to see everything in details. The visit is free if you have the Lyon Card pass giving you access to all museums in the city as well as unlimited access to the transportation system. Big up to the staff who put out the amazing things there!
  • Excellent l'expo typo-ANRT
  • I loved it!
