 Archives | Last updated date : 18/09/2018

This is one of the major annual events, like the Fête de la Musique (World Music Day), eagerly awaited by millions of visitors throughout Europe! It’s a superb cultural weekend when museums, monuments and historical attractions that are sometimes closed, or even hidden away, the rest of the year, open their doors to welcome visitors!


This year’s theme should prove popular with many people: ‘Le goût en partage’ (Sharing Taste)! Admittedly, Lyon might be taking a few liberties in its manner of interpreting the national theme – ‘l’Art du partage’ (The Art of Sharing) – but, seriously, what could be a more beautiful way of sharing than gastronomy?

This theme is close to the heart of Lyon, which has dug deep to come up with various activities based on the ‘ninth art’ to celebrate the occasion. There will be conferences, gourmet tours and other culinary experiences, providing ample proof that life in Lyon is rather pleasant (and has been since Antiquity!)

For the Heritage Days (known locally as ‘Les Journées du Patrimoine’), ONLYLYON Tourism and Conventions is organising guided tours and river cruises at special rates. You can find out more at www.visiterlyon.com. Make sure you book your places fast!


Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
