Lyon is the third largest city in France, with about 2.3 million people living in its metropolitan area. Situated at the convergence of the Rhône and Saône Rivers, it is considered the birthplace of cinema—pioneered by the Lumière brothers here in 1895—as well as a major culinary center. In the center of the city, located between the rivers, is Place Bellecour, a tree-lined public square with flower stalls, a small art museum and a seasonal ice rink.
