The terminal railway station Gare de Lyon in Paris France).
"Gare de Lyon" is located in the southeast of the city, the 12th District (arrondissement).
From here trains to run, for example, Lyon, Marseilles, Geneva, Turin.
The exterior of the station is by the great clock tower very striking.
Inside the station there is the famous restaurant "Le Train Bleu", which had closed at the time of my visit, unfortunately.
