The City of Lyon

Lyon was the Capital of Gaul during the Roman Empire and a great cultural and economic center during the Renaissance period. During the XIXth century, Lyon became a powerful industrial city and has now become a large European metropolis still under the influence of its enriching history. Lyon is now a listed UNESCO Heritage Site like cities such as Venice, Prague and Saint-Petersburgh. Its location, its economic dynamism and the quality of its environment have favoured Lyon’s development.
