"Nicest station in Paris" Paris Transportation Tip by sourbugger

The Gare St Lazare is by far the most atmospheric of the Paris Terminals. You are most likely to use it if you are heading out to Rouen (very well worth the day trip) or out to the Normandy coast (Le Harve, Dieppe). In the old days this would have been the departure point to pick up the transatlantic steamers to the New World.

It is also used for a good deal of Suburban traffic. Make sure you take time to have a look around and compare the station to how it looks on Monet's famous picture of the station. (see must do tips)
