Lyon

— 8 nights

Culinary Capital of France

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 La Roche de Solutre will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon. Venture out of the city with trips to Cite medievale de Perouges (in Perouges), Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins) and Chateau Historique de Pierreclos (in Pierreclos). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Vieux Lyon, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Cormatin, steep yourself in history at Jardin des Fontaines Petrifiantes, and delve into the distant past at Théâtre gallo-romain.
