Coming bytrain

The two Train stations in Lyon are:

Depending on where you come from, you will arrive at one or the other. (More probably Lyon Part-Dieu...)

Coming by plane

The airport in Lyon is called Saint-Exupery. There is a special tramway line that goes from the center of Lyon (Lyon Part-Dieu) to the aiport : more details on the site of "RhôneExpress.

The simplest is to take this tramway to Lyon Part-Dieu and use public transportation (see below).

Public transportation

Several buses pass by the CISL: buses C16, C22 and C25, and the tramway T4. The name to stop at the center is "Professeur Beauvisage - CISL". These are some possibilities:

Coming by car

The simplest is to follow road No. 383 and take the exit "États-Unis". There is no private parking but street parking is easy and free!
