But why Lyon it’s the second or the third city of France?

And the pictures are nice, like the city.

Because it depends on what you call a city. Lyon is the 3rd urban area with about 1 527 000 inhabitants (about 30 000 less than Marseille urban area) and the 3rd commune with about 480 000 inhabitants on 47 km² (Marseille has about 850 000 inh. on 250 km²). But Lyon is the second metropolitan area with 2 120 00 inhabitants and 1 715 000 for Marseille.

I didn't create it, it is the official slogan of Lyon.

I forgot to thank you, Minato, for all these photos. Whatever you show (and I know you're more into showing the real city than the postcard one), people can see that Lyon is a very underrated city. The atmosphere, even in winter, is unique. Grey in Lyon is more than grey, it's a heroic-fantasy grey.

Thank you a lot for these great pictures, they bring back beautiful memories of my visit in Lyon in spring! I think that Lyon is my favourite city in France at all - big enough to have a vibrant urban life and a good cultural life, but not so oversized and crowded like Paris, a charming old town and magnificent 19th century areas, plus a beautiful landscape surrounding the city. I also had the impression that the people in Lyon mostly seem to be much friendlier than in Paris, for example.

Great photos, city is quite underrated. But traffic seems to be a problem.

Obviously like any european cities, Lyon has pedestrian streets.

About the traffic it depends.
In August, Lyon is almost deserted and the traffic is very low (excl the motorways)
When I was here in December, almost all the major streets were full opf traffic.
Anyway I don't think that it is worse than in any european metropolitan area with 2 million inhabitants.

Do you want to be killed ? So never say to an inhabitants of Lyon or Marseille that their city is a little Paris.
While we can see some similarities, there is also many difference.

Except if you never been in France, you can't confuse Lyon with Paris.

France is a diverse country, the major cities of France tend to be very different to each other.
Look at this thread about Toulouse by exemple.

If you want my opinion Lyon is a much better city in winter than in summer.
I will post new pictures in the second page.

Fantastic pics, I love this city. I would say it's the second city in French because Marseille is a (excuse me) sh*thole. Lyon has a better economy, more beautiful, much more safe than Marseille, and it's a better place to live (even if there is not the sea).
