The Rhône is one of the largest rivers in France and is the mainstay of industry from Lyons to Marseilles with its factories, dams and power stations. It is particularly true of Lyons, ideally located between the Low Countries and Italy. The Rhône is one of Lyons' main landmarks and the banks from the Gerland district up to Parc de la Tête d'Or park have been recently redeveloped to offer cyclists, skaters and walkers an unusual way of exploring the city. If you want to discover Lyons by boat, head towards the North rather than the industrial zone of Feyzin in the South. Don't worry though, you can still sail, water ski and swim in some parts of the Rhône.
