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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lyon: Room Escape Games (in Annemasse), Annecy (Lac d'Annecy & La Vieille Ville) and Grenoble (Musee de la Resistance et de la Deportation de l'Isere, Musee de Grenoble, & more). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill, don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
