Lyon the second largest city of France with more than 1.5 million inhabitants. After Julius Caesar invaded and conquered Gaul (modern day France) more than 2,000 years ago, he set up his capital in Lyon.
During the Middle Ages, Lyon was established as an important crossroads for European traders. Home to Roman ruins, museums, coffee shops, opera, and great shopping, the city proudly proclaims to have some of the best cuisine in France. There are limitless opportunities to engage in French culture while being mere hours from Geneva, London, Paris, the Swiss Alps, or the Mediterranean Sea.
