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.
Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Cite du Chocolat Valrhona (in Tain-l'Hermitage), Le Jardin d'Eden (in Tournon-sur-Rhone) and Le Mini Train des Monts du Lyonnais (in Sainte-Foy-l'Argentiere). There's lots more to do: walk around Parc de la Tete d'Or, delve into the distant past at Théâtre gallo-romain, examine the collection at Musee Miniature et Cinema, and get active on the water at Cap Confluent Location de Bateaux Sans Permis.
