The Gare de Lyon is in the 12th district of Paris, close to the business district of Paris Bercy and Plaza Revolucionaria de la Bastille. It's considered to be the 3rd largest station in the capital (for size and daily passenger traffic). Outside is an imposing clock tower which tells passengers if they are going to miss their train. The station is open from 4 am until 1am or so and it's where you take the train to Fontainebleau and its beautiful castle, high-speed trains go to south eastern France (Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Perpignan, etc.). Also it has the RER commuter train that takes you to Disneyland Paris in half an hour. The new subway lines 1 and 14 (without driver) automatically stop at Gare de Lyon and take you quickly to the center of Paris. There is a very famous restaurant inside called the Train Bleu with traditional French cuisine in an exceptional place but it's quite expensive. The main entrance to the station is in the Plaza Louis Armand, across the street from Lyon.
What is the idea of a shuttle? Subway, say in this case? Transport us, take us from one place to another, closer to distant places. Well, that's what makes this system better transport. The Paris metro is a great way to mobilize in the French capital, by a highly cost effective and practical. I recommend it as a means of transport in the city.
Paris North Station or simply North Station is the main train station in France and is also one of the largest in the world, as it has about 190 million passengers annually. This is one of the six major stations in Paris. It is very important because there are numerous high-speed lines, both domestic and international; From here you can get to the UK, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. You can also take middle-distance, regional and suburban trains from here. This station also offers numerous connections to the metro and bus network. The monumental building was designed by French architect Jacques Hittorff and has been listed as a historic monument since the year 1975.
The high-speed line was opened in 2007, and officially put into service on June 10, 2007. New look and new design on the TGV, the French high-speed trains that reach stations Strasbourg, Metz, Meuse TGV, Champagne-Ardenne TGV and Lorraine TGV. The stations are near the towns of Metz, Nancy and Reims only in Strasbourg do you have the privilege of taking the train at the same station as usual, in the city center. This is because the train can't run at 320 km/hour on the same track as other trains so they had to build new tracks. Champagne Station is 5 km from Reims, Meuse is between Verdun and Bar le Duc and Lorraine between Metz and Nancy. This line is part of a larger European project, which will go from Paris to Budapest in Hungary in 2015! Also, for now you can go from Paris to Strasbourg in 2h 30m it's the fastest commercial line n the world with 320 km/hour, and the train arrived empty at 570 km/h!
This metro station is on Line 1 and part it's name is the same as one of the most famous avenues in Paris, it also bears the name of an influential French politician who had a very active political life, took outstanding responsibility and performed important work in the newspaper industry. The decoration of the corridors is very elegant, with ceramic tiles decorated with geometric motifs and some abstract paintings that give so much life to the subfloor. There's also a plaque dedicated to Georges Clemenceau.
Each stop is a new surprise on the metro, the decorations are totally varied, and each has its own personality. In this case I speak of the station Barbès - Rochechouart point between lines two and four. It is located just across districts 9th 10th Enclose Opéra-St Laurent (Gare du Nord) and 18 º Montmartre. The first time there, we were impressed, because when you leave your station to make the link, or just go underground, in the fresh air, you stand in the midst of towering columns of iron, one-person escalators and huge chandeliers. The station operates at two levels, one underground and the other that rises above cars. On the platform, the iron structure is decorated with floral motifs, and there are also blue glazed flower-shaped silhouettes.
