The Fête des Lumières, Festival of Lights, began in 1852 when locals in Lyon lit candles to celebrate the inauguration of Golden Statue of the Virgin Mary, the Patron Saint of Lyon. On that day, the city glowed with lights and this practice became an annual event.
Today it attracts millions of visitors from around the globe, who enjoy the fabulous ambiance. Light shows by professional artists have been added and the Place des Terreaux bursts with sound and colour. You can stroll around and buy beautiful candle votives in the many quaint stores and admire how the local homes have been decorated with creative lighting effects.
Then head off for a modern fine-dining experience at the fusion-inspired restaurant, L'Ourson qui Boit. Japanese chef Akira Nishigaki combines Asian and French with fabulous flair! After dinner head next door to his Pâtisserie, for a scrumptious dessert.
Rent a Jaguar at Lyon Airport and make a statement as you cruise to the Fête des Lumières.
