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...More

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...More

Considering that this train station was built in the 1800's, it's still quite the destination of choice especially for the ones doing business and shopping in the middle of the city

Hi. It is a big station but there are lots of screens with info on what is going from which platform. Our hotel was just around the corner and we went to have a look around quickly so we knew the lay out. We got there early... More
