This post will explain why so many people are moving to Lyon and tell you more about the Lyon removals services that we provide.

Why Are So Many People Moving to Lyon?

Situated between Paris and Marseille, Lyon is a beautiful city with a population of approximately 500,000 people.  It is the third largest city in France and home to some of the most remarkable architecture in the world — there are hundreds of stunning renaissance period buildings to discover.

Lyon is a thriving economic hub and a major centre for banking.  It is also home to some large chemical, biotech and pharmaceutical companies.  Many people move to Lyon to work in one of these industries and forge a successful career.

Lyon is a large city, but in many respects has retained the character of a provincial town — classic old buildings, quaint restaurants and character-filled bars.  The cost of living is much cheaper in Lyon compared to Paris, which is a major drawcard for many people interested in living in France.

The city is the culinary capital of France.  There are dozens of world class restaurants serving some of the best food you have ever tasted!  Lyon is also closer to the alps than Paris — important if you enjoy skiing during your holidays – It is easy to see why so many people are moving to Lyon!
