LIVING IN LYON
With 500,175 inhabitants, Lyon is France’s 3rd largest city by population, and some 133,800 students attend its three public universities as well as many other higher learning institutions, making it the second largest seat of learning in the country.
An excellent balance between a major city and one at a more human size, Lyon is renowned for its pleasant lifestyle, and was named a “Livable Community” in London in 2007.
Since 1998, the Old Town, the Fourvière Hill and the city center with the traditional traboules or covered passageways snaking up the Croix-Rousse hill have been named as UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Historically an industrial center, Lyon has turned toward cutting-edge sectors of activity. The city is home to many familiar names such as April Group, BioMérieux, Boiron, Sanofi Pasteur, CEGID, GL Events, Infogrames, Toupargel, Electronic Arts, Babolat, Euronews, Fiducial, LCL, Panzani, Renault Trucks, and so on.
