Immersion stay in Lyon
from August 2022

Discover Lyon

Lyon is a pleasant city to live in and to visit. 

For its human size:

Lyon is the third-largest city in France (by population). But it is very easy to get around by bike, public transport or even by car.

For heritage:

 

Ancient Rome, Medieval, the Age of Enlightenment, and the modern periods coexist in this beautiful city. Four sites are on the UNESCO  World Heritage list!

 

For gastronomy:

Lyon is known as the capital of gastronomy. If you like good food and good wine, you'll love Lyon.

For culture:

Lyon is rich in museums, exhibitions, and cultural events (the dance biennial, the contemporary art biennial, etc.)

For parks

Some examples :
The Parc de la Tête d'Or is one of the largest urban parks in France. Le parc des hauteurs offers a breathtaking view of the heights of Lyon. 

For its geographical location

Around Lyon, you will find exceptional sites less than 1 hour away by car (the medieval city of Pérouges, the charming town of Crémieu, or the ancient city of Vienne with its archaeological sites and its famous international Jazz festival.)

A little further, you can visit the famous city of Annecy and its lake, the villages of Pierres Dorées, etc.
