Gala Dinner




To access the location of the Gala dinner (Selcius restaurant) from the conference center, you will have three options:


Les Bateaux Lyonnais

1. By boat along the Rhone river from the north to the south of Lyon with a scenic overview of the city. The boat will pick you up in front of the conference center, head downstream on the Rhone and drop you close to the restaurant. The trip will take an hour. Maximum capacity: 580 persons.



2. By foot, via a walking tour accompanied by volunteer guides, members of the organizing committee. Departure will start at the city center (Place Bellecour) with the poetic statue of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (of 'The Little Prince' fame), then head to the Ainay district (and the Basilica of Saint-Martin d'Ainay, the sole Romanesque church of Lyon) and then along the Saône river. The Saône river walk is on a pedestrian path on the calmer side of the city with views of the old harbor and its flat boats, as well as Europe's largest urban regeneration project with its futuristic buildings (Ycone Tour, Orange Cube etc.). The walk will take about 45-60 min.

3. By your own means: by foot, subway, tram, Vélo'v (the world's first urban shared-bicycle system)...

The most convenient public transportation option to reach the Selcius is to take the C4 or C5 bus, a mere 2-minute walk from the main venue.  Afterward, transfer to the T1 or T2 tram. The tram will drop you off within a 10-minute walking distance from the Selcius. For further information, please visit the "Getting to and around Lyon" page.
