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 Lyon's surroundings by going to Room Escape Games (in Valence) and La Vieille Ville (in Annecy). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, examine the collection at Musee Miniature et Cinema, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon.

To see reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Lyon trip planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport, Saint-Étienne-Bouthéon Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Chambéry-Savoie Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 20°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to take a train to Reims.
