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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Annecy (Lac d'Annecy & La Vieille Ville), Musee de Grenoble (in Grenoble) and Room Escape Games (in Annemasse). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, and take in the views from Passerelle du Palais de Justice.

To see other places to visit and tourist information, use the Lyon route planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, 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. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
