Lyon

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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Secrets d'Apiculteur and L'Atelier de Soierie. Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Musee Miniature et Cinema are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins), La Roche de Solutre (in Solutre-Pouilly) and Chateau de Cormatin (in Cormatin). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, stop by La Chope de Lug, get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, and learn about winemaking at Chateau Fuisse.
