Science Museum
“A personal favorite. The newest Lyon museum has changing temporary exhibitions covering both ethnology and natural history. The location is right at the meeting point of the Saone and Rhone rivers. Family-friendly with lots to see on any given day. Do not miss going to the terrasse on the top floor. Easily accessible by bicycle or public transport (Tram T1 stop). Closed on Mondays, open late on Thursdays.”

Musée d'art
“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture. In the archaeology, the section pieces from prehistoric Europe, ancient Egypt, African, Greek, and Roman cultures. Other interesting pieces in the collection are medieval stained glass, 12th-century armor, Swiss watches, and Greek vases.”

Musée d'art
“Le Musée des Tissus a été créé au milieu du 19ème siècle, à la suite de la première Exposition universelle de Londres en 1851. Les fabricants lyonnais qui s'y sont rendus sont rentrés avec l’intime conviction de fonder à Lyon un musée d’échantillons et de dessins. L’objectif de l'institution était alors de maintenir l’avantage commercial des soyeux lyonnais soutenu tant par de grandes compétences techniques qu'artistiques.”

“Cycling You don't have to go this far but this is a very famous route on the Tour de France. It is also a killer to cycle up unless you are very serious and in form. There are plenty of delightful routes without the same stress. Just going from Lagrand to Laborel or Montjay is a pleasant quiet ride that does need some effort”

“The Bossons glacier claims to be the "largest ice fall in Europe." It is certainly the fastest moving glacier (300m/year)and it also reacts very quickly to climate change. Come learn about glaciers at the outdoor exhibit close to the Chalet du Glacier des Bossons.”

Mountain
“Une vue splendide et imprenable jusqu'au Mont blanc quand il fait beau. La route sinueuse pour s'y rendre est une étape mythique du tour de France. Vous pourrez vous arrêter en bas pour prendre un café ou déjeuner à l’hôtel des glaciers du col de Lautaret réputé pour la pratique du SNOW KITE. Amazin view on the French Alps even the Mont Blanc when the weather allows it. The wavy road to get there is a typical Tour de France route. You can have lunch down at the Col du Lautaret before you go up that beautiful road.”
