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 out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Room Escape Games (in Annemasse), Grenoble (Musee Dauphinois, Musee de Grenoble, & more) and Annecy (Lac d'Annecy & La Vieille Ville). On the 20th (Thu), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Parc d'Activites de Montagne de Praboure. And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, see the interesting displays at Musee des Confluences, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, and don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airports are Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport, Saint-Étienne-Bouthéon Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Chambéry-Savoie Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in February, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
