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: Room Escape Games (in Annemasse), Annecy (La Vieille Ville & Lac d'Annecy) and Beaune (Athenaeum & Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill.
