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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Jardin des Fontaines Petrifiantes (in La Sone), Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges) and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, take an exotic tour of Safari de Peaugres, get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill, and make a trip to Traboules du Vieux Lyon.
