France’s second-largest city in terms of population, in many ways Lyon comes in first. Indeed, it has everything a city needs to seduce. Its high-quality cultural offerings, a prime selection of eateries ranging from little bouchons (bar/restaurants specific to Lyon) to Paul Bocuse’s establishments, and the presence of 100,000 students to “live it up” with at the memorable parties to which Lyon invites you. Its wharves and old, pastel-coloured districts represent just as many invitations to walk about and to discover. Stroll around the city of silks brocaded with gold and silver threads.
At night, bathed in light, Lyon dazzles; discover its beauty for yourself (Lyon was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Centre in 1998), and let yourself be carried away by its energy and its art of living.

Welcome to Lyon!
