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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Dijon (Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, Musee Magnin, & more), Grenoble (Musee Dauphinois, Musee de Grenoble, & more) and Annecy (La Vieille Ville & Lac d'Annecy). On the 8th (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Parc d'Activites de Montagne de Praboure. On the 26th (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Station des Coulmes. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, make a trip to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Vieux Lyon.
