Les Augustins is situated on a cobbled street in Lyon's historical 1st arrondissement. The lively Place des Terreaux, flanked by the Hotel de Ville and Museum of Fine Arts, and with the magnificent Bartholdi fountain as its centrepiece, is a few minutes' walk away, with rue Edouard Herriot and rue de la République, two of the city's main shopping streets, just beyond. There is a wide selection of restaurants, from traditional "bouchons" to modern and international dining, in the surrounding streets; also numerous cafes, bakeries, bars and other eateries.
Rue des Augustins opens out onto the bank of the River Saône, with a splendid view across to Vieux-Lyon, the city's oldest district, and the hills of Fourvière behind. On most days of the week there is a fresh food market along this part of the river bank.
