Lyon is the essence of French lifestyle, a city on a human scale with deep humanistic values, and certainly not lacking in assets when it comes to tourism. Boasting 2,000 years of historic heritage inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, and a well-deserved reputation as the French capital of gastronomy, the city of world-famous chef Paul Bocuse has everything anyone could possibly need to ensure their congress and stay in the city is a resounding success.
European cradle of silk and cinema, Lyon also has a number of unique museums and international-class cultural institutions such as the Opéra National (elected world’s Best Opera Company in 2017), and the Orchestre National de Lyon.
Lyon is easily accessible from all major cities in Europe, and its international airport recently acquired a third terminal to cater for its expansion and three very high-speed train stations, including its international Gare Lyon Part-Dieu. By air, rail, road and river, Lyon is part of a global network, strategically positioned in France and Europe, and surrounded by incredibly diverse landscapes.
