This station was opened in 1848. Marseille Saint Charles is the main station. It is based on the model of the railway stations. It offers direct access to Paris by high speed train (TGV), which took over 15 million people in 2007 and arrives to Paris in about 3 hours time. The beautiful staircase leading from outside the station is a historical monument. It is decorated with impressive sculptures, that show that the station was previously the gateway to reach the port of Marseille and, therefore, to Africa and the Mediterranean by sea. Recently renovated, be sure to visit the station if you are ever passing by the city.
This is the central station of Avignon. It's in front of Cours Jean Jaures (the walls of the historic city entrance) and is very convenient if you arrive without a rental car. There is a luggage room (around 5 euros/bag) to use for up to 3 days, it's expensive for an afternoon but many people coming for the summer don't sleep in hotels because there are festivals and the hotels are full, then it's a solution to be weightless. A bus links the station to the Avignon TGV station, where fast trains go to Paris, Montpellier, Marseille, etc. At the level of the central station there are regional trains to the coast and the Alps. If you travel a lot you can buy a Eurail pass or a 12-25 card (if you're less than 25 years old).
The small train station of Eze, is situated in the lower part of town, right at the start of the walking trail that leads into the town, which takes half an hour or so.

The station building is painted red, so you can not miss it.
Not far from the Fontsainte neighbourhood, this small station is famous in the world of cinema.
