LYON, CITY OF CULTURE

 

 A city of culture and creativity

 

The cultural life of Lyon is characterised above all by the perfect balance between its cultural institutions of excellence offering quality programming,  its large-scale festivals, and cultural venues that are open to everyone.

 

That is why Lyon has been named France’s number 1 city for culture (outside of Paris) and indeed the city’s culture is one of its main tourist attractions.


Among Lyon’s excellent institutions are the Maison de la Danse, the Opera House, the National Orchestra of Lyon, the Institut Lumière devoted to cinema, the Fine Arts Museum, the Célestins Theatre, the Contemporary Art Museum and more.
