Lyon

— 8 nights

Culinary Capital of France

Lyon is a historical city with a vibrant cultural scene as the birthplace of cinema, the silk capital of the globe, and the second biggest Renaissance city following Venice.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cite medievale de Perouges and Jardin des Fontaines Petrifiantes. Escape the urban bustle at La Roche de Solutre and Grotte de Choranche. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Chateau De La Greffiere (in La Roche-Vineuse), Col du Beal (in Saint-Pierre-la-Bourlhonne) and Chateau de Chasselas (in Chasselas). Spend the 29th (Tue) among the fascinating landscape of Parc Naturel Regional des Volcans d'Auvergne. The adventure continues: trek along Les Pertes de le Valserine, take in the dramatic scenery at Cascade du Saut du Chien, see the interesting displays at Musee Miniature et Cinema, and have fun at Les Truites d'Andaure.
