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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Vieux Lyon. Take a break from the city and head to La Roche de Solutre and Parc de Courzieu. Explore Lyon's surroundings by going to Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges), Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins) and Theatre Romain (Antique) (in Vienne). The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, get to know the fascinating history of Fourviere Hill, don't miss a visit to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon.

To find where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Lyon holiday planning tool.

Expect a daytime high around 23°C in May, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
