It is well worth taking this short tour while visiting Antibes. It makes for a nice break in the day and a useful option for visiting Juan Les Pins where you can alight and reboard later. Only €8 per person.

A good overview to determine where you want to visit while there. The speakers were not very audible, but to simply ride along and take in the sites was sufficient for 8 euro. The unsettling aspect for me was the music provided for this leisurely ride.....Negro spirituals..... created by enslaved Africans in America. Somehow this genre didn't quite gel for... More

This little train was a lovely way for us to see a little bit of Antîbes & Juan Les Pins. €8 per person. Took in sights that we missed initially travelling around. A good mode to use to get your bearings, if you have never been to the area before

While this a "very touristy" way to see the town, it did provide an adequate means to get acclimated without driving. The ability to get on an off was a plus. The day we went to Antibes was spectacular...clear blue sky, sea, and light breeze. Enjoyed Antibes the most of all the "Cote d' Azur sea side cities.

That is what the locals call this train but I thought it was a great journey, the commentary was ok too, kept us informed along the way in English too. It picks up a fair amount of speed up the hills too. take a pullover or scarf, it's quite breezy on the train. Great fun, well worth 8 euros.

On a coach tour, we had a LONG walk from the drop off point into the old town. We discovered (too late) that there is a local bus which runs every 10 minutes (cost 1 euro) which you can pick up. The Petit Train runs from the old town square every hour and is probably an easy way to see... More

We did the complete route together with our baby kid and the three of us enjoyed the rids. Sadly, we couldn't hear the audio comments because the volume was too low.

Le petit train is a great way to get from Antibes to Juan Les Pins and takes about 20 mins each way. There is a recorded commentary through part of the journey but this is quite basic and was difficult to hear at times. We used the train to go to Juan Les Pins in the morning and then did... More

Supposed to take 40 minutes each way but in fact takes about 25 mins each way - the so called tour is very basic indeed - the commentary is boring and lack lustre - very disappointing. However, it's handy if you don't want to park the car in either town - both towns are very busy in high season.

We used the little train a couple of times in order to visit Antibes, travelling from Juan-les-Pins. The ride takes about 20 minutes each way. The service is very regular and runs throughout the day and evening (midnight during the summer). Buy a ticket at the kiosk situated where the train departs from.
