Lyon Fourviere Lumieres

Bonjour!

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 can find out more on their Facebook page and the official site. The site is also available in English. The site has useful information on different shows around the city and times.

Travel info
-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 taking a TGV via SNCF, check out the SNCF website “Gares en Mouvement” to see about train arrivals and departures. They also have tips for visits to Lyon.

-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 !
