Not to miss: Go to la fête des lumière in December. They play with lights in the magical French atmosphere of the Rhone and the Saonna. For three days you can see performances, improvisations and a city celebrating, all focused on lights and colors. You'll be even luckier if this is all framed with a border of snow, seeing as it's winter.

Not to miss:  The important tourist destinations in Lyon include parks, gardens, theatres, museums and galleries. The Musée des Tissus or Textiles Museum and the Musee des Beaux-Arts or the Arts Museum are the most popular tourist attractions in Lyon.
The Basilique de Fourviere, also nicknamed as 'upside down elephant' is  representative of the various sources of ideas collected during the end of the 19th century.
The Esplanade de Fourviere is a church which provides one of the best views of the city right at the top of the Roman hall giving you practically a bird's eye view. ... More
The Parc des Hauteurs is  situated behind Fourviere. People here thoroughly enjoy some of the special features of this park like the ski slope, the aerial adventure course and the majestic views of the Beaujolais.
Other most visited locations in Lyon are Place de la Comédie, Roman Ruins and Museum of Gallo-Roman Civilization.
