There are two mayor stations in Venice, Mestre is the one on the continent, Santa Lucia the one on the main island of Venice (the touristy bit).

Considering the overwhelming amount of impressive railway stations, I think it could be exciting to arrange all the nominations by continent, then organise several sub-cups (Europe, Asia, Africa...), and eventually have the most voted stations of each sub-cup meet each other in a final international cup.

In the same spirit, I'm nominating Saint-Charles from Marseille:

- good new extension
- tremendous use of an incredible surrounding & geography, best I have ever seen. There's no place where I like arriving in the city more than I do in Marseille.
