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 Courzieu. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Théâtre gallo-romain. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins), Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives) and Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges). There's lots more to do: walk around Parc de la Tete d'Or, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Cormatin, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, and don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon.
