Lyon is the third largest city in France and is located 431km (268 miles) southeast of Paris and 311km (193 miles) north of Marseille. It is the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region and the second largest contributor to the French economy after Paris. It has a population of 413,000 inhabitants. Lyon is between two hills, the Fourvière and Croix-Rousse, and between two rivers, the turbulent Rhône and the tranquil Saône. Lyon is a very industrial city; textile manufacturing is one of the most important here. Not only that, but this city is known as the capital of gastronomy. This city has the largest number of Michelin-star restaurants. The tradition of the city of lights or 'Lugdunum' (as called by the Romans) is still present and every evening more than 100 sites across the city are lit up to show the splendor of Lyon’s architecture.
