Lyon, the city where the Rhone and the Saone come together, is the second-largest city in France. There are plenty of things to discover and do in Lyon. You can walk along the banks of the Rhone and Saone, or take a walk around the historical old city, which is a world heritage site declared by UNESCO and stroll through the many small alleys and narrow streets.
Take time to admire the imposing Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, which was built on the hill of the same name. From there you will be able to enjoy an impressive view of the city below. Visit some of the wonderful restaurants and enjoy the famous regional cuisine, which is considered by many to be one of the most popular types of French cuisine.
Regardless of what time of year it is, Lyon is always worth the trip. However, for many locals and also international visitors, December 8th is considered to be the most beautiful day of the year. Those who visit Lyon on that day will celebrate the great "Festival of Lights", also known as the "Fête des Lumières". Year after year during this festival the city is alive with the most wonderful colours. Many buildings are bathed in colourful sparkling lights and artists emphasise the beauty of it with light installations.
While studying French in Lyon, you will learn more than just French, you will experience the charm and authenticity of this magical city, where you can easily start a conversation with the friendly locals, which is also a good way of putting into practice what you have learned in your French language class, and also a good way to make new friends and interesting acquaintances and learn about a foreign culture.
