Established by the Romans over 2000 years ago as the capital of Gaul, modern Lyon is France's third largest city and also one of its safest. It bathes in history, much of it still visible in the form of Roman amphitheatres, aqueducts, and much more. In the late nineties, UNESCO recognized Lyon's historic quarter as a World Heritage Site. Located at the crossroads of Europe in Southern France, Lyon is close to countless European destinations. Paris, Switzerland, and Italy are only tow hours away by train, while other major European cities such as London, Barcelona, Brussels, and Amsterdam can be reached within five hours. In addition, the Alps with its world-class ski resorts and the beautiful beaches of the French Riviera are only two hours away by car or train.
