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.
Visiting Safari de Peaugres and Parc de Courzieu will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Vieux Lyon. Venture out of the city with trips to Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins), Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges) and Chateau Historique de Pierreclos (in Pierreclos). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon, make a trip to Traboules du Vieux Lyon, delve into the distant past at Théâtre gallo-romain, and admire the striking features of Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval.
