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.
Appreciate the collections at Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon and Musee Miniature et Cinema. Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Lyon to go to Saint-Rambert-en-Bugey and see Musee des traditions bugistes, which is approximately 52 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Musee des Confluences, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill, take an in-depth tour of Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon, and stroll around Parc de la Tete d'Or.

To see photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Lyon trip itinerary planning tool.

In August in Lyon, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 19°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
