Fête des Lumières – Festival of lights in Lyon

The annual Festival of Lights in Lyon since 1852 is expecting over 3 Millions of tourists from December 6th to December 9th. If you have never been there, it is something to try at least once in a life time!

There will so many lit up buildings, trees and amazing creations all over the city and on the Saone River. Don’t miss the lights show with sound at the Cathedral St.Jean!

I recommend at least two nights to see the lights.

Here are a couple pictures of last year festival:
