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.
Explore hidden gems such as Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon and Fresque des Lyonnais. Your inner history buff will appreciate Cathedral Saint Jean Baptiste and Statue de Notre Dame de France. Venture out of the city with trips to Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges), La Clusaz (in La Clusaz) and Bourg-en-Bresse (Musee de la Mecanographie, Monastere Royal de Brou, &more). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon, admire the local landmark of Place des Jacobins, see the interesting displays at Musee Europeen de l'Aviation de Chasse, and steep yourself in history at Musee de la mine.
