Lyon, a choir city

Lyon is a city where culture rimes with good food! A city where two rivers join at the door to Southern France. A city looking towards its future but rich of its past with its Roman theatre and the «Vieux-Lyon» Renaissance quarters. A city where modern architecture mingles with historical buildings.

Its heraldic animal, the lion, is the sign of an enormous force bursting with thousands of new initiatives.
