Help from Lyon experts, please

Jump to last reply

Hubby has a meeting in Lyon, FR this coming October. We will be in Lyon for 5 days at that time. He is usually very busy during the days, so I expect to be on my own with some interesting dinners together in the evenings.

Once the meeting ends, we want to extend our stay a bit. Here's where I could use some suggestions.

--Will most likely spend one or two more days in Lyon for hubby to sight see.

--We want to get out into the wine country. Considering a day trip with a private guide. Any recommendations? Is one day enough? If more than one, where would be a spectacularly beautiful or very interesting place to overnight? If this could be done as day trips without dragging luggage along so much the better, right?

--Annecy sounds lovely. Is it enough for more than a day trip from Lyon? Is it easy to day trip via train?

--What else would be a must see? Should we stay in Lyon or take a car and do the drive around on our own? If a car, where to stay along the way? We love B&B or small inns, but the beds are so tiny in some that we literally can not sleep. Suggestions?

Right now we are trying to figure how many days we need so that we can purchase the International tickets.

Thanks for your thoughts.
