Location of Metro station

Cour Saint-Émilion is a station of the Paris Métro, located on the Line 14, which opened in 1998.

It is named after the French wine Saint-Émilion because it was built at the old railway station of Bercy where wine from south of France arrived in Paris.

The entrance of the station opens onto Bercy Village, which is a commercial area of Paris that replaced the old wine warehouses of Bercy. This is an area specialising in good food.

In the vicinity of the station, it's also possible to visit the Musée des Arts Forains ("The Fairground Art Museum").
