Lyon is located at the heart of the European Union and is France's second largest city, with a population of over a million. Lyon is located in the Rhône-Alpes region, which is the first economic region in France after Paris and one of the largest in Europe.

Lyon's distinctive history dates back to the invasion of Gauls by Julius Caesar, when it became Lugdunum, the capital of the Gauls.

In the middle ages, Lyon became an important trading centre as its trade fairs attracted traders and bankers from all over Europe. The Italians eventually brought the Renaissance tradition with them to Lyon and built the district known today as "Vieux Lyon" (Old Lyon) leaving their characteristic architecture from the 15th and 16th centuries. Such a unique ensemble led to its appointment as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The modern part of the city, built in the 18th and 19th centuries, called the Presqu'Île, is situated between the two rivers, the Rhône and the Saône. This area is well-known as a pedestrian shopping area.

Lyon still plays a major role in Europe's political, cultural and economic development. In June 1996, Lyon was the location for the G7 summit.
The city hosts a total of 12 educational establishments, universities and specialized schools and more than 100,000 students.

An opera house, numerous theatres, museums, libraries, cinemas, music venues, galleries, parks, shops, restaurants and cafes make Lyon a very attractive city to live in.
Lyon has inspired a local cuisine that has made the city France's culinary capital and is home to many famous Chefs restaurants such as Paul Bocuse.

Besides, Lyon is a convenient departure point for travel to ski resorts, the southern coast of France (Provence and Côte d'Azur), Paris (2 hours by TGV) and other European countries, such as Italy, Switzerland and Spain.
