DESTINATION LYON

Lyon, the city of light, combines history, culture and quality living

Lyon has been an international city of trade and exchange for over 2000 years. Today, as a protected UNESCO site, it continues to amaze millions of visitors each year and delight its inhabitants thanks to its exceptional heritage and enchanting, well-designed urban landscape. The Gallo-Roman period has left Lyon with many treasures, including the ancient theatre, the Notre Dame Basilica in Fourvière, the district of St Jean, and the famous "traboules" (passageways) in the old city.

As the 2nd largest economic centre in France and 5th largest in Europe, situated midway between the Alps and the Mediterranean, Lyon offers an exceptional environment and a wide range of leisure activities. Lyon is the French capital of gastronomy, renowned throughout the world for its quality of life, its rich land and produce, its Light Festival and Biennial Contemporary Art Show.

Its public transport network provides easy access to every area of the city. Thanks to 3 high-speed train stations and Saint Exupéry airport just 20 minutes from the town centre, as well as a dense motorway infrastructure, Lyon also has excellent links to other major cities in France and around the world. All of these factors make the second largest urban centre in France a leading business destination.
