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.
Shop till you drop at Plage de Conjux and La Roche de Solutre. Get outdoors at Cascade de Vulvoz and Cascade du Ruisseau de Pointay. Change things up with these side-trips from Lyon: Atelier-Musee Du Chapeau (in Chazelles-sur-Lyon), Collegiale de Saint Symphorien sur Coise (in Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise) and Chateau de la Bastie d'Urfe (in Saint-Etienne-le-Molard). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Théâtre gallo-romain, admire the landmark architecture of Monastere Royal de Brou, take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbaye d'Hautecombe, and contemplate the long history of Cite medievale de Perouges.

And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Chateau de Chantilly, brush up on your military savvy at The Army Museum, shop like a local with Le Marais, and get engrossed in the history at Musee de la Grande Guerre.
