This was free with the French Riviera Pass so we decided why not. Took us around with great commentary and even stopped up on Castle Hill for 10 minutes for us to get off stretch the legs and get some great panorama shots.

As my partner is disabled, these little trains are a great way to have a look around without lots of walking. The commentary was very interesting although lots of small details can be lost to the hubbub of traffic around you. The train winds its way in and out of the old town and goes up the castle hill which... More

Lasting a hour and a half, the small train for tourists runs a route around Nice Old Town as you listen through headphones. Hearty laughing when you cannot find the "clock tower" mentioned, or when the reason for Nice Cannon Boom is given (the Duke of Savoy's wife needed a reminder). Eventually, the train goes up to the Castle Hill... More

I was in holidays to visit my family with my boyfriend, when we decided to go to visit Nice. As we were getting tired, we though it might be nice to take the train and visit Nice as well as going on Castle hill, without having to walk. The tour was actually nice, it brings you to the top of... More

This is a perfect way to see Nice and get to the park where the castle once was and see the panoramic view of Nice 92m above the old town. Really good value and half price for children up to the age of eleven. Lasts about 55 minutes. Have fun!

If you've only got a few hours in Nice, get the petit train for an hour's tour and some background info on Nice. Audio tour along the route via headphones, and there are fabulous panoramic views of Nice and the Baie des Anges when you arrive at the top of the hill for a 10-15 min stop. Worth the 8... More

No help as to when this little tour train was expected, no ownership of the service, our tour missed off the visit to the castle, which upset a lot of the travellers

this was well worth it for 8 euros per person. You get headphones to listen to a pre recorded "tour" which was interesting. It takes you to all the nice parts of Nice and yes, you can walk those places, but its fun to just sit and let the little train take you there. I would recommend you do this... More

Waste of time and money. Walk and feel the city. Quick and useless spin around the old town. Stop at top of the hill is only 10min, make sure to stay and catch the next train down.
