For a ride through the relatively narrow streets of Vieux Cannes (Le Suquet), board the train at a clearly designated site along La Croisette on its seaward side. Both tours depart every hour; each lasts between 30 and 40 minutes and each costs between 5€ and 6€ for adults, and between 2.50€ and 3€ for children under 10, depending on the tour. (The tour of the old town is the less expensive.) A combination ticket granting access on both of the two tours (which can be enjoyed on separate days, if you prefer) costs 8€ for adults and 5€ for children under 10. For details, call tel. 06-14-09-49-39.

Le Petit Train is an ideal way to see the fantastic sights of Cannes.It costs 10 euros and takes about an hour. The commentary, through headphones, is multi lingual and most informative. The train takes you along the famous Croisette area which in lined with designer shops, impressive hotels and many cafes. It continues past the Palm Beach Casino, goes... More

We visited Cannes as part of the coach tour that we were on and were getting fed up with being 'dumped' with no help at all so a group of us decided to take the tourist train. Well, for €10 we had the most fantastic tour. We were given headphones and selected the English version and away we went down... More

Petit Train de Cannes is a train on wheels that runs around the city in three different routes. For 10 Euros/Adult I would recommend the 1 Hour Big Tour. It covers all major attractions of the city and have some info thrown at you over the headphones. It runs along the Croisette, Palm Beach Casino, and then back to the... More

We visited Cannes for an afternoon so didn't have much time. This small train tour proved to be an excellent way of taking a quick look at Cannes. The commentary was very informative and interesting. The tour lasted just over 1 hour with a 10 minute stop to get great views of Cannes. The cost was just 10 euros so... More

We took the Petite train during a visit in December 2014. It was off season and Cannes was not too busy. The tour was interesting and good for a quick overview of the city. It wound through the main sections of Cannes and made one stop at a historic church. However, perhaps I had too high hopes because I was... More

It's a quick way to see Cannes if you don't have much time to spare. It's more like the roof-top tourist buses that take you around, but it's build like a train. There are 6-8 languages in the audio guide and each traveller is given a pair of headphones to listen individually. Overall, it's a good option if you don't... More

It's just like any other train you board in different cities, choose your lenguage, put on the headphones (if they're not broken), sit and relax, automated tour guide will do the rest. What makes it different is this beautiful city you're riding through. Long tour ia about an hour and takes you through promenade and new part of the city... More
