Only Lyon - Tourism and Conventions


A true synopsis of Tourist Office activity, this journal reveals our ideas, our actions, our endeavors, our achievements as well as the lives of our team and its progression.
It will give you an open window on our lives combined with our desire to adhere to a more participatory tourism, based on a true exchange of ideas, experience and know-how, the quest for authenticity and an appetite to experience true emotions
Much like our desire to have those tourists "travel" within our city, we would like you to "travel through our lives" by reading this journal.
