The only exceptions are the following: children aged under 11, joggers and cyclists.

A mask must also be work in shops, restaurants (when not seated at your table), cultural venues and establishments open to the general public.

The ONLYLYON Tourist Office at your disposal

Our ONLYLYON Tourist Office on Place Bellecour reopened on Tuesday the 2nd of June.
Our teams are delighted to be welcoming visitors once more, with slightly adjusted opening times in June: an uninterrupted service is provided from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm every day of the week.

Because capacity is limited, we have introduced a “pre-reception” at the entrance in order to ensure compliance with required hygiene and safety standards.
