Flights to Lyon

Fly with Austrian from the USA to Lyon, the beautiful city on the confluence of the Rhône and Saône Rivers. Once called Lugdunum after the Celtic god Lug, the city was built by the Romans as the administrative and religious center of their province Gallia Lugdunensis. You can still visit the impressive Roman theater still in use for live events, and the Odeon. Both are located at the foot of the Fourvière hill, which is a great point for getting an overview over the city. Up there you will also find the cathedral Notre-Dame de Fourvière and the Tour métallique, a copy of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Discover the beautiful old town of Lyon with its Renaissance buildings and narrow little alleys. There are secret passages between some alleys that you can only find when you know where they are. You can book a tour for these Traboules, as the passageways are called. In the quarter of Croix-Rousse there used to be the famous silk production of Lyon, today it is a lively area full of boutiques, restaurants and craft shops. Lyon is also the capital of French Cuisine, the art of fine cooking. The long tradition started hundreds of years ago with the “Mères Lyonnaises“, the Mothers of Lyon, who cooked for the journeymen who travelled from town to town. They laid the foundation for today’s world-renowned Haute Cuisine. Enjoy the culinary highlights of Lyon with a glass of the local Beaujolais or Côtes du Rhône!
