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.
Get outdoors at Plage de Conjux and Parc de la Tete d'Or. Popular historic sites such as Cite medievale de Perouges and Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lyon: Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives), Museum and site of Saint-Romain-en-Gal Vienne (in Vienne) and Parc de Courzieu (in Courzieu). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Chateau Historique de Pierreclos, appreciate the extensive heritage of Vieux Lyon, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint Nizier, and explore the ancient world of Théâtre gallo-romain.
