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 Grotte de Choranche. Escape the urban bustle at La Roche de Solutre and La cluse du Flumen et ses cascades. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Chateau de Chasselas (in Chasselas), Chateau De La Greffiere (in La Roche-Vineuse) and Col du Beal (in Saint-Pierre-la-Bourlhonne). Spend the 29th (Tue) exploring nature at Parc Naturel Regional des Volcans d'Auvergne. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Jardin des Fontaines Petrifiantes, see the interesting displays at Musee Miniature et Cinema, appreciate the extensive heritage of Vieux Lyon, and trek along Les Pertes de le Valserine.
