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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval and Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cite du Chocolat Valrhona and Chateau de Cormatin. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lyon: Monastere Royal de Brou (in Bourg-en-Bresse), Cathedrale Saint-Maurice (in Vienne) and Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Abbaye Saint-Philibert, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, examine the collection at Fresque des Lyonnais, and brush up on your military savvy at Musee de l'Aviation Clement Ader.

To see other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Lyon trip planner .
