Lyon — 8 nights

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cite medievale de Perouges and Chateau De La Greffiere. Escape the urban bustle at La Roche de Solutre and Grotte de Choranche. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Col du Beal (in Saint-Pierre-la-Bourlhonne), Chateau de Chasselas (in Chasselas) and Cascade du Saut du Chien (in Septmoncel). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Jardin des Fontaines Petrifiantes, enjoy some diversion at Les Truites d'Andaure, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, and take in the dramatic scenery at Cascade de la queue de cheval.
