Photo Spot Details

This is a particular “photo spot” since it is more a “photo time”. Lyon organizes every year around December 8th the “light party”. All the city is illuminated by different artists and there are visual shows in building. If you are in France in December, it is definitely a wonderful place to go. Here is the website. Be sure to bring your tripod. While you are there, enjoy the food since Lyon is known to be the capital of gastronomy.
