I stayed at the Residence Le Tempo from 3 August to 15 August. My friends and I attended the World Masters Athletics Championships in Lyon. Mme Isabelle Guijarro was wonderful and helped me with a problem with a lost purse. I was very impressed also with the service and attention of Francesca in the London office. Please if possible pass on my thanks to both.

History 

Lyon History

Lyon/

Fourvière Hill was established as a Roman colony in 43 BC by Munatius Plancus, a lieutenant of Caesar, on the site of a fort on a hill Gaul named Lugdunon. Vipsanius Marcus Agrippa recognized that his natural position on the road north of France to the south-east of France, represented a strategic position for communications and there establishes the starting point for the main Roman roads in Gaul.

Christians in Lyon were tortured because of their religion during the reigns of the various Roman emperors, especially during the reign of Marcus Aurelius and Septimus Severus. Burgundian refugees from the destruction of Worms by Huns in 437 were installed again Lugdunum by the commander of the west, Aëtius. In 461, the city was formally the capital of the new Burgundian kingdom. In 843, through the Treaty of Verdun, the city and the country beyond the Saône was given Lothair1, and later became the Kingdom of Ales. The France finally fell under the rule of France in the 14th century. At the end of the 15th century, fairs introduced by Italian merchants made Lyon a strategic economic point of France. Even cash, built in 1749, resembled a public bazaar where accounts were settled in the open air. When the international bank was moved to Geneva, then Amsterdam, Lyon was always the banking center of France. In 1572, Lyon was the scene of mass violence against Huguenots the day of the massacre of St. Barthomoew's. During the French Revolution, Lyon rebelled against the National Convention and bore the Girondins. In 1793, the city was attacked by the Revolutionary Armed and remained under siege for two months before traveling. With the Renaissance, the silk market grew, especially with Italy, who turned Lyon a major industrialized city in the 19th century. During World War II, Lyon served as the center of the German occupation forces, as well as resistance.

The alleyways (secret passages) through the houses enabled the local people to escape Gestapo raids. September 3, 1944, Lyon was liberated by the French first division and Free French forces inside now houses the museum of the resistance.
