Walking around Bellecour

The Presqu’île is truly the Fête des Lumière’s ‘pièce de résistance’.
You’re far from short of displays in the area around Place Bellecour: if you start at the square, you only have to walk a few minutes to reach the displays at Place des Jacobins, Place Antonin Poncet and Place de la République. Given the range of displays in such close proximity, it’s definitely not an area you should miss out!
To top it off, you’ll be free to walk around on the evenings of the Fête des Lumières without having to worry about cars- they’re completed banned in the Presqu’île during the event!
