Lyon

The second largest French city takes party of the resources it has, its geographical location, offering the best of nature and completing it in the best way that man can: With its architecture, gastronomy, art and entertainment.

Ever since it has always focused on the trade routes, Lyon took advantage of its privileged geographical position to grow not only in economic terms but also culturally, thus becoming a city where you can combine business with leisure but without disregarding either. It is true that there is much to see and do, but it is also true that everything is pretty close. No need to look far to find a restaurant, a garden or a concert hall. Even if what you need is not just around the corner, it is very easy to get there. As in other areas, the transport sector is also characterized by variety. There are over 120 bus routes, four subway lines, two funicular railways and two surface metro lines. There are also being developed policies to promote sustainable transport, which includes the increase in the number of bike lanes and bike rental stations. Although in other parts of the region of Rhone-Alps the climate can be harsh, the fact is that Lyon is located on the peninsula of Presqu'ile contributing to temperate seasons, with more than two thousand hours of sun exposure.
