Lyon Event Breaks
We offer a number of breaks that combine a visit to Lyon with a number of celebrated events in the city and surrounding areas. Lyon, France’s second city and gastronomic capital, is a lively historic city ideal for those in search of lots to see and do. Classified as a world heritage site, Lyon has it all; Roman amphitheatres, medieval streets, renaissance architecture and modern art.
The Beaujolais Nouveau is celebrated every year on the third Thursday of November. A day’s visit to the local towns and villages is the perfect excuse to sample the festivities as well as the local wine.
For the last 10 years, Lyon has been hosting a world famous international light festival. For 4 days in December the city is awash with lights, as buildings are illuminated and exhibitions of various shapes and sizes decorate the town. Lyon is also a great shopping location, so why not combine a city break with some festive shopping.
“Les Nuits de Fourviere” is a summer long festival held in the Lyon’s open-air Roman amphitheatre. Modern and world music, Opera, theatre and classical music are all performed under the stars in an acoustically and aesthetically amazing site overlooking the city. Just choose the performances you would like to see and we will do the rest
