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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Parc de la Tete d'Or and Les Labyrinthes de Hauterives. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lyon: Abbaye Saint-Philibert (in Tournus), Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives) and Grenoble (Canyon'In, Bastille, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, appreciate the extensive heritage of Vieux Lyon, browse the different shops at Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, and don't miss a visit to Le Mur Des Canuts.
