Summer Gastronomy & Tourism program (5 weeks)

Lyon's fine cuisine is an integral part of the local way of life. The city is the capital of French gastronomy and offers a choice between the popular charm of its famous “bouchon” bistros, the refined elegance of its two-and-three-star gourmet restaurants, and the warm lively atmosphere of its open-air markets. Conferences, visits and cultural activities will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about French Cuisine!

Come study in Lyon, rated # 1 city in France for students! Its remarkable location in proximity to Provence, the Mediterranean, the Alps, and the large wine regions makes Lyon one of the most charming and attractive city in France.
