Lyon is the second-largest city in France with the population of its urban area estimated to be 1,400,000. Located just two hours from Paris (south) on the TGV (High Speed Train), Lyon is 200 km (120 mi) from the Provence and 350 km (200 mi) from the mediteranean sea and 160 km (99 mi) from Geneva (Switzerland).
The city of Lyon is known for its historical and architectural landmarks and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the first century B.C., Lyon was first an important Roman capital of the three Gauls (France) known at the time as Lugdunum (meaning "the hill of light"). Then Lyon became a major Christian center. From that time, prosperity continued to grow, reaching its peak in the Renaissance.
Lyon has developed a reputation as the capital of gastronomy in France also due to the presence of many of France's finest chefs in the city and its surroundings (e.g. Paul Bocuse) . Two of France's best known wine-growing regions are located near Lyon: the « Beaujolais » to the North, and the « Côtes du Rhône » to the South.
Lyon has a significant role in the history of cinema due to Auguste and Louis Lumière who pioneered cinema in the town in 1895.
