    Ask for help the first time using the ticket machine - the help staff was especially friendly and helpful in walking us through the first ticket purchase. It was fast and easy after that.

    Beautiful architecture, a myriad of good restaurants and shops. Being a major station, however, it's too much to handle for an introvert at times.
