Lyon in France, is it worth visiting?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are doing a self drive tour of France, and this is our first time in Europe. I was planning a drive from Beaune to Lyon for a 1 day/1night stopover in Lyon before we drive on to Annecy. After doing some reading, I have noticed that Lyon is a very large city, and not easy to get in and out of.
I was just wondering if there is anything in Lyon that is really a must see, or are we better avoiding it and finding other places or having the extra day in Annecy?
