One of my favorite places to go in Lyon was to the “hidden” courtyard in the Musée des Beaux Arts.
If you look out of the courtyard, you see out onto the Place des Terreaux. This is to be expected, as the museum’s entrance is just off of this square.
I think it’s both a shame and a blessing that this place isn’t more known. It’s such a beautiful place, but if more people knew, it’d be overrun! Still though, I recommend you stop by. The art in the museum is all right. But the courtyard is simply the best.
