About Lyon - France
The people of Lyon are proud of their city and do not want new visitors to miss out on any of its highlights. To that end, the local council provides a free service aimed at showing all those that are interested around their fair city. You can find details of this service at the Lyon Tourism and Conventions website.
In the lead up to Christmas, from the 8th to the 11th of December, all talk will be of Lyon's Festival of Light or "Fete des Lumieres". This annual four day electric light extravaganza highlights the most historical sites in the city and daubs them with incredible coloured electric light patterns, creating fairytale scenes and space age visions across the facades of these ancient buildings.
The Festival of Light is free and open to all and people do come from all over the world to see it. Combining popular traditions with technological innovations, you will be surprised and enchanted by the 60 or so lighting scenes that illuminate the city. The most spectacular light shows can be found in the town centre with smaller, more participative scenes in the town's various districts. The festival is designed to highlight the city's architectural heritage, its rivers and its principal monuments through a combination of fantastic scenes making use of lighting, video and audio. The continuous lighting and video effects, visual arts and creative audio combine to help you see Lyon as you have never seen it before.
