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.
Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives), Station Autrans Meaudre (in Meaudre) and Parc d'Activites de Montagne de Praboure (in Saint-Antheme). On the 11th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Station des Coulmes. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, examine the collection at Musee des Confluences, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport, Saint-Étienne-Bouthéon Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Chambéry-Savoie Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Lyon can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
