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 find plenty of places to visit near Lyon: Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives), Grenoble (Canyon'In & Bastille) and Le Jardin d'Eden (in Tournon-sur-Rhone). And it doesn't end there: play a few rounds at Parc de la Tete d'Or, see the interesting displays at Musee Miniature et Cinema, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon.

In June, daytime highs in Lyon are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
