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 Grotte de Choranche. Escape the urban bustle at La Roche de Solutre and La cluse du Flumen et ses cascades. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Chateau De La Greffiere (in La Roche-Vineuse), Col du Beal (in Saint-Pierre-la-Bourlhonne) and Chateau de Chasselas (in Chasselas). 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 du Saut du Chien.
