Main attractions near Gare de Lyon

Gare de Lyon train station is the ideal gateway to explore the east of the French capital, located at a crossroads for the 4th, 11th and 12th arrondissements. After leaving the main entrance, on Place Louis-Armand, it’s only around a 10-minute walk to find 44-46 Rue de Lyon. Here lies the start of an urban green walk, which runs the length of 6.5 hectares and allows visitors to explore the 12th arrondissement away from traffic. A 10-minute walk along this path will lead to Place de la Bastille. This square was once home to Bastille prison, until its destruction during the French Revolution.
