Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This one hour journey comes with headphones and by pressing a number from one to eight on the small 'console' in front of you the commentary can be in one of 8 languages. The route of the Grand tour takes you right along the promenade and then up the hill of Le Suquet with a 10 minute stop for magnificent... More

At 10 euros, this was definitely a bit of a tourist trap, but I only had a few hours to spend in Cannes, so this was the best option. The journey gives you an overview of the main sites in Cannes, with some history included, and a stop at the top by the church/castle to take photos of the view... More

Our tour program director called this the "choo choo". It was a very nice tour of the town and short enough to see the sights, all the beautiful hotels, etc and take pictures without having to walk around and get hot.

I wasn't sure about the little train and Cannes, but I enjoyed this little jaunt. I was able to work out where I was and where I needed to go. Taking over an hour the train took us to the key areas in Cannes complimented with an audio, which gave key little facts and stories. There is also one stop... More

Took the "little train" as part of an excursion from our cruise. Cannes itself is beautiful, the beaches, the scenery, etc.. If you enjoy taking a ride and listening to history, then it's for you. I did not enjoy the narrative on the ride, and although views were spectacular from the top, I would have been just as happy with... More

This little train takes you on all the key sights around Cannes. Along the beach front to the Palm Beach at one end and up the hill to the church (Le Suquet) and it's fab views. Take in the vast designer shops running in parallel to the beach front and learning about where the rich and famous hang out. A... More

This is an easy and quick way to see many parts of Cannes - good if it is very warm or you simply don't have that much time. The vocal guide is quite boring though and needs to be updated.

If you are running short of time, this is the best way to explore Cannes in an hours time. The audio commentary in 10 selective languages will give you the glance of Cannes in your own way.
