Getting to the Viaduc des Arts

The Viaduc des Arts runs from the Opéra Bastille to the Jardin de Reuilly. The nearest Métro stations are Bastille (near the opera house) and Montgallet or Dugommier (at the eastern end of the viaduct, near the Jardin de Reuilly). The Reuilly entrance is also within walking distance of Gare de Lyon station. Stairways lead from the sidewalk to the Promenade Plantée at various points along the Avenue Daumesnil (which parallels the viaduct), so if you prefer, you can just head for the avenue, explore the ateliers and galleries in the vaults, and wander upstairs to the landscaped walkway.
