Activities - leisure:
• Lyon offers an incredible range of options for you to enjoy during your French course. Boutiques, cinemas, exhibitions, concerts, sports centres, bars, restaurants, discos: so many opportunities for going out with friends, taking a stroll or partying!
• A city with two thousand years of history, Lyon has plenty for keen historians, while food lovers are spoilt for choice in the city known as the French capital of gastronomy and famous for its bouchons. For some fresh air, there’s nothing like spending some time in the magnificent city centre Parc de la Tête d’Or, in the heart of the city. Out of town, the backcountry and Rhône countryside are glorious, whether for a walk, a cycling tour or a wine-tasting trip to sample the finest Beaujolais vintages.
• Throughout the year, locals and tourists enjoy large-scale cultural and artistic events, including the famous Festival of Lights, the Nuits Sonores or Nuits de Fourvière music festivals, dance and contemporary art festivals, jazz bars, street shows, discos on barges... and if that is not enough, you can easily travel to Geneva, Paris or the French Riviera and enjoy fantastic excursions!
