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.
Get some historical perspective at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Théâtre gallo-romain. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Vieux Lyon and Musee Miniature et Cinema. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Monastere Royal de Brou (in Bourg-en-Bresse), Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges) and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives). The adventure continues: walk around Parc de la Tete d'Or, examine the collection at Musee des Confluences, explore the world behind art at Musee des Tissus et des Arts Decoratif, and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Just.
