Gare de Lyon

Place Louis Armand - 75012 Paris
Located in the heart of the 12th arrondissement, Gare de Lyon welcomes 110 million visitors a year. Trains depart to serve central-eastern and south-eastern France. Built in 1855, and redesigned by the Toulon architect Marius Toudoire for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, the station is also famous for its impressive architectural features, such as the Clock Tower (by Charles Garnier, who created the opera of the same name). This monument, classified as a historical monument, offers a panoramic view of the capital from its 67 metres high.

The station is divided into three large halls. Hall 1 is the historic hall of the station, dominated by the emblematic restaurant Le Train Bleu, a true Parisian institution that is worth a visit on its own. Its large forecourt is enlivened in summer by terraces and pop-up stores. Hall 2, modern and bright, welcomes mainline travellers and offers a wide range of restaurants. Hall 3 - underground - provides access to the OuiGo trains and offers fast food. These three halls are linked by two shopping galleries: the Galerie Diderot (beauty, accessories and ready-to-wear shops) and the Salle des Fresques (a must-see shopping experience for mainline passengers).
