Coming to Lyon for plastic and reconstructive surgery is perfectly justified by the chance of benefiting of excellent care (www.surgery-aesthetic-france.com). This is justified just as much by the "Lyon destination" as a city. Lyon was actually voted the 2016 best destination for weekends and short breaks. Lyon indeed has all the advantages of a large international metropolis, but has remained on a human scale. Quoted right into the 21st century with its contemporary and futuristic projects, Lyon also offers an interesting journey through time: from the Roman city (Lugdunum) to the modern city (Part Dieu, Confluence, Gerland), passing through the Renaissance neighbourhoods of old Lyon listed as UNESCO World Heritage, the classical buildings, the Haussmannian streets of the peninsula and the 6th district.
At night, Lyon shines with 1,000 lights under the influence of the ambitious light plan, from the Festival of Light (December 8), now taken up by several major international cities. Its event offer is wide: capital of dance at the time of the Dance Biennial, city of lights on the occasion of its Festival of Lights, cinema city during the film festival in tribute to the inventors of cinema that are the Lumière brothers, cultural city through its many museums and exhibitions.
Lyon has also become a dynamic metropolis where these days it’s good for developing a business and spend time. Well located geographically, it can be easily reached by plane through the Lyon St Exupéry international airport, or by the TGV at the Part Dieu train station.
International city with its towers of the Part Dieu district, its futuristic architecture of the new district of Confluence, Lyon also stands at an impressive level when it comes to higher education thanks to prestigious schools and universities. Lyon prepares the future in a large number of areas, and excels in the field of Plastic Surgery, field in which many congresses and symposiums are organized.
Lyon is also considered as the capital of gastronomy with its multitude of restaurants, and internationally renowned chefs. Many restaurants knew how to make the gastronomic tradition evolve towards modernity, the classicism towards culinary innovation. For a long time, the Lyon gastronomic school was brilliantly guided by Paul Bocuse, who has trained and guided many disciples in France, and all around the world.
