Where is it?
Two thousand years of history have left their mark on the cityscape. Lyon's rich heritage resources reflect the different eras and tell the story of the city. Lyon's listing by UNESCO as a World Heritage site gives recognition to two exceptional features: "continuity of urban development" -the listed site covers a territory of 500 hectares (1235 acres) where the entire history of the city can be seen, from the founding of the Roman city of Lugdunum. And as "an outstanding illustration of city planning over the centuries" in this continually populated and active territory.
The Rhone valley has always been a major axis for road and river traffic. Lyon has taken full advantage of this prime location by developing a network of exceptional infrastructures: Lyon Saint-Exupéry international airport with its TGV high-speed train station facilitating air-rail connections, the highly developed TGV network and freeway system.
The urban transport network consists of over 100 bus lines, four metro lines, two funiculars, plus two tramway lines inaugurated in 2001.
