Walking along La Promenade des Anglais (as you must when in Nice) we came across this small tram. For 8 euros each we sat in the front of one of the rear carriages. It was a lovely afternoon weatherwise and so able to get a feel on the city as we went around. It stops at the Castle for ten... More

It is a nice tour in the city for those visiting for the first time to have an idea about the city. It takes about one hour with 10 minute stop at castle hill. It cost about 8 euro There is audio comments by 6 languages.

For 8€ and 45 minutes, this train ride was a great way to see historic Nice. If it wasn't for the train, we definitely would have missed some of the sights. Headsets are included and the commentary is very informative. Be prepared to have people crammed in. There's a train leaving every 30 minutes, so if you miss one, no... More

Can't beat this 45-minute overview of Nice for only 8 euros. The train is small enough to squeeze through the narrow streets of Old Nice. The big hop on hop off buses can't do that and cost 21 euros. My headphones were easy to use and worked well. One guy had headphone problems and he merely switched phones at an... More

Yes it's touristy - and a bit "naf" but you have to do it. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it really showed us a lot of areas of Nice that we probably would not have discovered in our short time there. Also takes you up to Castle Hill and waits 10 minutes - so plenty of time for some photographic... More

This tourist road train cost €8 p.p. and was worth every cent. A good overview of the old quarter is given with a commentary if you want it. The trip goes up to the castle and around the old quarter. Recommended if you have not been to Nice before. The train is very busy so be prepared for a wait... More

I am usually guarded about these sort of tourist draw cards but in this case I was pleasantly surprised Information was informative although not always in keeping with the attraction The trip to the top Castle Hill gave a wonderful view of Nice and also the artificial waterfall There was 10 minutes leisure time at top which was quite enough...

The lovely journey from Villefranche to Monaco by rail takes around 20 minutes and is very busy, if you can get a seat on the double decker train sit by the window for the lovely views - however - be very aware of pickpockets! My 85 year old mother( who had to stand!) had her purse stolen out of her... More

This train tour of Nice covered Le Château par la Vieille Ville and La Promenade des anglais. It was only 75 minutes but most of that was spent driving to the top of the Château or sitting at stop lights. It was hard so see any of the sights because we were going by quickly or they were too far... More
