Looking to go during the summer of next year. Any tips for that? What is the best time?
Lyon is beautiful all year round, but there are two months when visiting it is more complicated. August, because it is very hot and the city tends to empty a bit (yes, I really like the calm of August, but not everyone likes it). Most of the year Lyon has mild temperatures, making it difficult to visit only in periods such as August or January. The periods in which it gives the best of itself are September (the city comes alive for the arrival of new international students and the return from the holidays, the sun shines without burning and events are not lacking) and Spring, from April to May when the beautiful city parks are filled with flowers and the riverside becomes the perfect place for an happy hour. The month in which it got more tourists is December, for the Festival « La Fête des lumières », which is held every year. The most underrated month ? October. The temperatures are still gentle, the Parks become a great place to see the autumn foliage, while the museums compete for the most interesting exhibition.
