Lyon travel tips

1) See the props of famous films at the Musee du Cinema et de la Miniature in Lyon

The Cinema and Miniature museum in Lyon is two in one. The film collection includes 450 animatronics, prostheses, robots, masks, costumes, etc., used in various films from "Spiderman" to "The 5th Element". The collection by Dan Ohlmann unites realistic miniature scenes. The reproductions of living spaces on a 1/12th scale have around 1,000 tiny objects. Make a trip to another dimension while visiting Lyon!

2) Beware of strikes while travelling to Lyon

Strikes are an important part of French history and culture. The county is near the top of Europe's list by the duration of strikes. For instance, a rail strike is likely to occur at least once a year. Demonstrations and disruptions of services may follow. That’s why you should monitor the news for information about the ongoing and planned strikes. Forewarned is forearmed!

3) Save money by ordering coffee at the counter inside a cafe in Lyon

Orders requiring a waiter (for instance, from a table outside) are priced higher. If drinking a cup of coffee is all you want, head up to the counter, grab your drink and find a spot on a nearby public bench to enjoy it. A penny saved is a penny earned!
