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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Eglise Saint Nizier and Eglise Saint Georges. Get outdoors at Cascade de la Valliere and Espace Zoologique De Saint Martin La Plaine. Venture out of the city with trips to Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval (in Hauterives), La Roche de Solutre (in Solutre-Pouilly) and Monastere Royal de Brou (in Bourg-en-Bresse). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Cite medievale de Perouges, examine the collection at Fresque des Lyonnais, and admire the local landmark of Place des Jacobins.

Expect a daytime high around 20°C in April, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
