Dear friends,

Of course there is cold, rain, sometimes snow. The days that are getting shorter. But that's no reason to stay locked in your house. There is so much to do in November in Lyon

We have prepared a list of events and things to do this month, exhibitions, concerts, but also wine tastings. November in Lyon means the release of Beaujolais Nouveau, a local and light wine that marks the beginning of winter. It helps us to wait for the scent of mulled wine served in the street during the Festival of Lights (December 6-9), Lyon's most important annual event.

You will love winter in Lyon.
