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.
Visit Plage de Conjux and Plages de Saint Jorioz for some beach relaxation. Do your shopping at Cite du Chocolat Valrhona and Galeries Bartoux Beaune. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lyon: La Vieille Ville (in Annecy), Plage de Chatillon (in Chindrieux) and Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu (in Beaune). The adventure continues: stroll around Parc de la Tete d'Or, admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill, and make a trip to Eglise Saint-Bonaventure.
