Lyon, France

Lyon ©
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.
Visit Fourviere Hill and Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Musee Miniature et Cinema and Théâtre gallo-romain. Venture out of the city with trips to Le Puy-en-Velay (Cloitre de la Cathedrale du Puy-en-Velay, Statue de Notre Dame de France, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Institut & Musee Lumiere, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, take an in-depth tour of Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Lyon journey planning site.
