Lanterns adorn balconies and windows and streets a full of performers making the event quite a visionary display. Different events are organised in the different quarters.

A lovely city, all alight

This is a marvellous time to visit Lyon, although not one that is quiet or peaceful.

For the last 150 years, the city of Lyon has held its Fête des Lumières. All around the city, displays of light are set up.

As well as the buildings being lit up, there is usually a theme and full displays of colours and light are everywhere. Take the time to explore the city, both in the afternoon (for shopping fun!) and then enjoy the colour and life of Lyon at night.
