Loved this little train, we stopped off at the top of the hill and saw over Nice and the coastline, beautiful stunning place. Never thought I would like Nice as much but I would return for a stay there. Cruising gives a snap shot of were you might re visit, Nice is on my list. Wish we had more time... More

The train tour was billed as 45 minutes around the main attractions of Nice, but because of road works and closures on account of a visiting dignitary, our trip took an hour and a half. The highlight is the view from the terrace at the castle ruins in the park - absolutely stunning when the weather is fine. A headphone... More

We came upon this sight-seeing train (8 Eu pp) sitting on the seawall loaded with passengers. Fortunately, we were able to get on for the 10:30 AM tour. The ride was approximately forty-five minutes in length around various parts of Nice. And headphones were provide for commentary. The train, also, took us uphill to the site of former castle Colline... More

What a fun way to see Nice. Like the open top bus, you get headphones to listen to commentary. It only cost 8 euros for 45 minutes, which I thought was worth it alone to get to the top of Castle Hill :-) It starts and finishes on the Promenade.

Purist travellers will, I'm sure, cringe at the little tourist train but with just a couple of days in the city we wanted to see as much as possible. Having already done the open top bus tour much of the train journey was a duplicate, but with Nice being such a beautiful place with such stunning architecture, that's hardly a... More

These little trains seem to be everywhere these days. I loved it! Such fun. I waved at everyone as we passed not really listening to the audio guide provided, Reasonably proceed to 8 euros for nearly an hour. Great way to spend the afternoon. Lots of young children aboard all having a lot of fun so suitable for all ages,... More

Two adults with a four year old took the 45 minute tour on the little motorized train. It was an enjoyable and informative tour around the key sites in Nice that are most interesting. Audio on earphones in all languages with clear explanation of the tour was very good. 20 Euros as the best money spent so far on our... More

We jumped because the kids love a train ride. It's 8 euros for adults and 4 for kids. They didn't charge for our 2 year old. It lasts 45 minutes and goes around and in the old town and up Castle Hill, stopping for 10 minutes so you can take pictures of the view then you get back on and... More

We found the commentary very hard to hear, even at maximum volume and some of the headsets didn't work. The content was dull and not very informative. The main benefit for us was getting to the top of Castle Hill. There were spectacular view from the hill, but we would have preferred a longer stop.

I travelled from Nice Airport to VilleFranche by train. It cost 1.80 € dirt cheap on time easy to use. I then went to Monte Carlo from Nice again great value for money, better than hiring a car.
