  • If someone had told me that at the CHRD I could find this quality of stakeholders conferences I would have gone sooner and more frequently. The recent conference on "Engage" and "Collaboration" were both very documented and interesting without being too academic. A great time that I highly recommend to lovers of history

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
