Lyon, the capital city of France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, is a fascinating place that sits right where the Rhône and Saône rivers meet. It’s got a ton of history; over 2,000 years’ worth! You can see remnants of the past everywhere you look, from the ancient Roman Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules to the medieval and Renaissance buildings in Vieux Lyon. But Lyon isn’t just about the old stuff—it also has a modern side. Take the Confluence district, for example, located on the Presqu’île peninsula. It’s all sleek and contemporary. Oh, and let’s not forget about the traboules! These cool covered passageways connect Vieux Lyon with La Croix-Rousse hill; it’s like a secret network of hidden pathways. Ojur students love that Lyon just so happens to be home to some top-notch universities and higher education schools, making it the second-largest student city in France. This is a true STUDENT town! There are almost 200,000 students studying there at one time; that’s the size of most North American mid-sized cities!
