There's far more open on Sundays than just museum gift shops...

Shops in Vieux-Lyon, one of Lyon's main tourist attractions, are authorised to remain open every day of the week, all year round.
In addition, since 2016, changes in French law mean that shops are allowed to open on twelve Sundays per year, which are chosen by the municipal authority.

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!"
