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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Parc de la Tete d'Or and Mini World Lyon. Step out of Lyon with an excursion to Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval in Hauterives--about 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill, get your game on at DreamAway, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
