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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Jardin des fontaines petrifiantes (in La Sone), Le Jardin d'Eden (in Tournon-sur-Rhone) and Museum and site of Saint-Romain-en-Gal Vienne (in Vienne). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Parc de la Tete d'Or, don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, get great views at Bastille, and see the interesting displays at Musee Miniature et Cinema.

To find traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Lyon trip planner.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport, Saint-Étienne-Bouthéon Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Chambéry-Savoie Airport. In July in Lyon, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
