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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lyon: Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu (in Beaune) and Annecy (La Vieille Ville & Lac d'Annecy). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, explore by horseback at Parc de la Tete d'Or, and get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill.
