Lyon — 5 nights

Culinary Capital of France

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 Musee Miniature et Cinema capture your imagination. Do your shopping at Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse and Taverne Gutenberg. Explore Lyon's surroundings by going to Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges), Maison de Lamartine (in Milly-Lamartine) and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, examine the collection at Musee des traditions bugistes, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, and take a stroll through La Place Bellecour.
