The place des terraux is a beautiful square surrounding by cafes, making a perfect lunch spot. There is also the very impressive fountain in the middle.

Make time for this square.....the Musee des Beaux Arts faces on to it.

Have a lunch at one of the restaurants eg 'Opus.......you will notice that prices on this side of the city are reasonable and significantly lower.

Catch a beer and the slanting sun in the corner of the square....top left as you face the Town Hall....Hotel d Ville.

I loved this plaza. My husband and I stopped there several times during our stay in Lyon. The statue alone is worth a visit. It's an amazing, complicated, beautiful statue and the water flowing into the fountain adds to the interest. The Plaza is expansive, and appears to be a gathering place both for tourists and locals. There are a number of cafes at the edges of the Plaza, most with outdoor seating. This is a spot that should be on a must-visit list for anyone going to Lyon.
