Starts towards the East end of the Promenade and winds its way through the Old Town (some very tight turns) and up Castle Hill where it stops for 10 minutes. Great photo location with views to the West along the sea front. Don't miss the waterfall.

We took the train from Nice to Monaco. It was hideously overbooked and we were jammed in like sardines. As we tried to get off the train, we were pushed and had to battle our way off the train. Once off, I realized that I'd been pick pocketed. Thank God it was just a couple of hundred of euro's, my... More

Taking a break from the beach we went on train that goes through the old town then up to the old castle on the hill and then back down again. The whole trip lasts around 45 minutes, which includes a 10 minute stop at the top of the hill, giving a little time to go see the views over looking... More

A very good option to explore the city if you do not have enough time. It costs 8 euros and gets you to all main attractions. I took it the first day and then by myself visited places I liked during the trip

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
