Owner description: This public square, lit up at night by a beautiful 19th-century fountain, is always crowded in the evenings.

Nice coffee shops and bars to sit and enjoy the sunshine, beautiful architecture and a lively atmosphere. Exactly what we wanted.

The first night we stayed at Lyon, we bought kebab from the corner near the Place des Terreaux, we sat by the fountain and enjoyed our meal. The scenery transformed our simple dinner in a magnificent experience. Observe the horses of the fountain, which take out smoke from their nostrils, giving a wild and intense impression, as they are ready to run nickering.

Fountain is in a well attended plaza with a few affordably priced restaurants. Aim to attend for happy hour and sit for an hour or so. Beautiful scenery of the fountain with a museum in the background as well as ample subject matter for people watching.

Lovely place, view on the town hall, lovely fountain.

When yiou sit here, drinking a glass of wine on one of the terrasses, you see a lot of people passing by, a lot of trolleybuses driving by (Lyon public transport is amazing) and, of course, the ubiquitous cleaning crews. Public expenditure on the last two items must be enormous, but it is a very good example of how a modern million inhabitants city should be managed.
