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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at La Maison du Cru Fleurie and Marche des Noel. Discover out-of-the-way places like Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval and Cite du Chocolat Valrhona. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lyon: Chateau Musee de Desaignes (in Desaignes), Chateau de Julienas (in Julienas) and Village de caractere de Boucieu le Roi (in Boucieu-le-Roi). The adventure continues: make a trip to Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Abbaye Saint-Philibert, admire the landmark architecture of Monastere Royal de Brou, and view the masterpieces at Taverne Gutenberg.
