The annual famous light festival in Lyon, France, Fête des Lumières, takes place this December 6th thru December 9th, 2012.
It is really a FANTASTIC show. The amazing aspect of the spectacle itself varies according to year, but you won’t regret going. You may only regret the crowds. I’ve been the past 5 festivals and the population of Lyon doubles to almost 4 million during the long weekend.
-You’ll want to check out the TCL Lyon public transport system website for travel updates.
-The regional train system, TER Rhone-Alpes, has information on train schedules as well.
-If you’re flying in, the Aeroports de Lyon website has information.
-Hotels are usually booked this weekend months in advance. Check out classifieds or apartment sharing websites at this point.
It’s truly a wonderful festival, and I love the city of Lyon. Check out my post from last year.
Bonne visite !
