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.
Let the collections at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon and Galerie Estades Lyon capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Fourviere Hill are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Espace des Brouilly (in Saint-Lager) and Hotel-Dieu (in Belleville). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Musee Miniature et Cinema, buy something for everyone on your list at Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, get to know the resident critters at Parc de la Tete d'Or, and make a trip to Fresque des Lyonnais.
