The Europe-wide Journées du Patrimoine return September 16 and 17, offering free entry into historic sites, workshops, and government buildings usually closed to the public.
“I first came from the United States to Lyon on a study abroad program in September 2016. I stuffed my life into two suitcases and got on a one-way flight to a city I’d never heard of until a few months before. Lyon grew on me more quickly than any place I’ve ever been to. Now I spend my days biking around the city, writing, and trying to make everyone else as obsessed with Lyon as I am.”
