Lyon

— 4 nights

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.
Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Cite medievale de Perouges will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at La Roche de Solutre and Les Gorges du Fier. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Collegiale Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul (in Saint-Donat-sur-l'Herbasse), Cite du Chocolat Valrhona (in Tain-l'Hermitage) and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Cormatin, contemplate the waterfront views at Lac du Bourget, admire the striking features of Cathedrale saint Jean-Baptiste, and stop by La Maison du Cru Fleurie.
