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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste and Cite medievale de Perouges. Get some cultural insight at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Institut & Musee Lumiere. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Abbaye Saint-Philibert (in Tournus), La Roche de Solutre (in Solutre-Pouilly) and Le Puy-en-Velay (Statue de Notre Dame de France, Cathedrale Notre-Dame, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Place des Jacobins, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, see the interesting displays at Fresque des Lyonnais, and visit The Presqu'ile.
