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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste and La Renaissance Du Vieux Lyon. Venture out of the city with trips to Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges), Les Grottes de La Balme (in La Balme-les-Grottes) and Clermont-Ferrand (L'Aventure Michelin & Cathedrale Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, explore the stunning scenery at Les Gorges du Fier, see the interesting displays at Institut & Musee Lumiere, and walk around Parc de la Tete d'Or.
