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 Fresque des Lyonnais and Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon capture your imagination. Get a sense of the local culture at Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste and Abbaye Saint-Philibert. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lyon: Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges) and Chateau de Cormatin (in Cormatin). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, take an in-depth tour of Musee d'Histoire de Lyon, and see the interesting displays at Institut & Musee Lumiere.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Lyon online trip maker.
