If you fancy visiting Lyon in a more unusual style, hop aboard the Bus Impériale Découverte. Today, Nathalie Rivoire, Director of Lyon Le Grand Tour is taking us around the city… without any tiring walking and from 4 metres up!

Can you sum up in a few words the concept of Bus Impériale Découverte?

With Bus Impériale Découverte, tourists can explore the city at their rhythm. The 1-day pass with its “Open Up Off” system allows visitors to get on and off the bus whenever they please throughout the day. From 4 metres up with your head in the trees, the view is magnificent! You can see all the most beautiful elements of the city: the landscapes, quays, UNESCO World Heritage monuments, etc. The commentary, which is packed with interesting anecdotes, is offered in six languages.

What circuit does Lyon Le Grand Tour offer visitors?

From the Presqu'île to the banks of the River Saône, via the Place des Terreaux, the circuit offers views of the city’s most beautiful monuments. A visit to the Fresque des Lyonnais, one of the 150 wall paintings that recount the history of Lyon over the past 2,000 is a particular high point!
The climb up to the Basilica on the Fourvière hill also has some surprises in store.
And before getting back to the bustle of the city centre, the bus takes you through the Parc des Hauteurs, leaving a beautiful image of the green city of Lyon.

What other services are on offer for a maximum of discovery?

The bus can be privately hired for private or professional events, offering a whole host of different possibilities: breakfast, birthday and cocktail parties, unusual transfers… for seminars… In fact anything is possible!

What are the high points of the year?

Come and take a tour on the Bus Impériale Découverte during the Fête des Lumières (Festival of Lights). A tour of the city during this event is sure to be unforgettable.
And for those who can’t be here on the 8th of December, we certainly hope to see you next summer for the Lyon by Night tour. The whole of Lyon lights up for you…
