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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon and Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval. Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and Vieux Lyon 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 1h 25 min away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Musee Miniature et Cinema, explore by horseback at Parc de la Tete d'Or, take an in-depth tour of Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Fourviere Hill.
