We arrived here by taxi. It is not a huge station and there are not many amenities. Plan to arrive about 25 min before your scheduled departure. Be sure you know the LAST stop on your route. For example- we were going to Biarritz, but...More

One of the busiest places in Paris, lots of people coming and going, trains going to a lot of places. Lots of TGV's. Places to eat and shop. Not many places to sit and wait. And not pretty. Functional.
