Walking on the Presqu'île

Entirely free of traffic, the Presqu’ ile de Lyon is open to pedestrians at nightfall during the Festival of Lights. The symbolic Place Bellecour transforms into a mesmerising garden and if you saunter down to the Opera House, via the Théâtre des Célestins, you can discover the illuminations on the grand squares and monuments of Lyon.
