Do you know how efficient & cheap and easy you can explore Lyon with your Mobile Phone? Well you just need to activate one, two or more of the best Top 20 Mobile Apps to use in Lyon that I have found.

It took me longer to explore this area as although I am internet addict, I love my laptop more than anything else! That is why i haven’t been using my smartphone properly. But once I discovered how useful it is when I am outdoors i had a better look into making the most out of it when living in Lyon. I have found out that I do not need a map, I do not need a guide, I do not need a book anything in advance or even I do not need to have a plan to start visiting Lyon!

Basically all I need is my mobile and access to the internet and I can use some applications especially created for Lyon. These apps are almost all for FREE and will help you discover Lyon independently, on a budget and never get lost.
