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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Entrée PRO musée des Beaux-Arts Entrreprises and Musée Miniature et Cinéma. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cite medievale de Perouges and Abbaye Saint-Philibert. Get out of town with these interesting Lyon side-trips: Chateau Historique de Pierreclos (in Pierreclos), Chateau de Cormatin (in Cormatin) and Hameau Duboeuf (in Romaneche-Thorins). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Rock of Solutre, meet the residents at Parc de la Tete d'Or, look for all kinds of wild species at Parc Animalier de Courzieu, and admire the striking features of Monastère Royal de Brou.
