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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mini World Lyon and Cathedrale saint Jean-Baptiste. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives), Room Escape Games (in Valence) and La Roche de Solutre (in Solutre-Pouilly). There's lots more to do: stroll around Parc de la Tete d'Or, make a trip to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, wander the streets of Place des Jacobins, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere.
