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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Vieux Lyon and Bastille. Explore Lyon's surroundings by going to Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins), Chateau Historique de Pierreclos (in Pierreclos) and Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Parc de la Tete d'Or, examine the collection at Musee Miniature et Cinema, explore the ancient world of Théâtre gallo-romain, and step into the grandiose world of Le chateau d'Essalois.
