Discovering France

Spending time in Lyon in the summer months is a wonderful opportunity to explore one of France's most famous cities. The downtown area of Lyon is a romantic city surrounded by the Rhone and Saone rivers. You will  love strolling in the narrow streets in the old town.

Lyon is dominated by the basilica on Fourvière hill which is visible from almost everywhere in the city. The city's climate is generally temperate and in the early summer comfortably warm.

Lyon is a great city to study in. Long known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 2012 Qs ranking places Lyon at number 14 in the world rankings for students to study in based on criteria such as the cost of living, quality of studies, and student life.
