If you've not done French railways with a wheelchair St Lazare would be a good introduction. Go to the low desked information desk in front of the main platforms, obviously its better to arrange in advance , but if you give a little extra time. you are welcomed, noted asked to wait, picked up, accompanied and pre boarded according to...

Gare St. Lazare is a launching point for tourists who are taking the train to Giverny. Make sure you get here early, because we had to rush trying to navigate the place. The bottom floors are a huge shopping mall. That's nice because we easily found a quick place to grab a cafe and a croissant... but we had to... More

We stayed nearby ( our hotel backed o to the station) so were we popped in for a look. It is a pretty average train station.

Gare St. Lazare is in a great location - things like the Paris Opera (and the relatively new Hilton Hotel Paris Opera) are nearby. And there are decent hotels and restaurants, some of which are not quite as busy and expensive as the one downtown where everyone wants to be. Also, location-wise, by metro you can easily get downtown, and... More

Very disappointing train station from an understanding how it works for a foreigner. We ended up buying an unwanted ticket on the underground to a town that sounded like my pronunciation of Rouen! Eventually we were helped by an employee who took pity on us doing our best to buy a train ticket ( which is very different from a... More

Maybe we were sleepy but the experience was pretty confusing. You don't use the machines in the entry/exit for purchasing tickets (unless you are buying tickets for the Metro). Go to the end of the station and wait in line for the ticket agent. Very little security but got us where we were going.

What a brilliant photo opportunity at the Lazare train station! Also a great humbling experience ... whether you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, in a hurry or at leisure, local or foreign .... time is the same for everyone.
