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 discover tucked-away gems like Cathedrale Saint Vincent and Eglise Saint-Martin. Popular historic sites such as Chartreuse de Sainte-Croix-en-Jarez and Eglise Saint Nizier are in your itinerary. Explore Lyon's surroundings by going to Basilique d'Ars (in Ars-sur-Formans), Taize Community (in Taize) and Chateau de Flecheres (in Fareins). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Musee d'Histoire de Lyon, make a trip to Eglise Saint-Bonaventure, and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint Georges.

For traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Lyon road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport, Saint-Étienne-Bouthéon Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Chambéry-Savoie Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to drive to Chamonix.
