http://www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html will show you train times from Santa Margherita Ligure to Monaco. It will not show you prices.

The website will show you prices only as far as Ventimiglia, where you always have to change onto a French train. To see all prices, use a date this week, as fares for journeys solely by Regional train are NA online more than seven days ahead. However, it will show times, and prices for journeys using InterCity trains, up to December. Click 'Details by selection' for more details of each connection - an additional change of train is often required in Genova Brignole or Genova Piazza Principe.

The full timetable of trains from Ventimiglia to Monaco is here …ter-sncf.com/Images/Paca/Tridion/FH04-Mande… There are no reservations or advance reductions on these local commuter trains. Buy tickets in Ventimiglia, or (probably) Santa Margherita for €4 each.

There are no buses suitable for a journey from Santa Margherita to Monaco, by Eurolines or any other bus company.

I linfer. I went to Montecarlo a couple of weeks ago, and started my journey from Diano Marina.

Well, at the ticket office I was given 3 tickets:

- Diano Marina - Ventimiglia

- Ventimiglia - Monaco Montecarlo - Ventimiglia (€ 7.60 adult price and € 3.80 for kids- I've got the ticket in front of me)

- Ventimiglia - Diano Marina

Remember that you must stamp your tickets before boarding the train in the yellow box machines, also in Montecarlo.

Enjoy it!

It was my first time in Diano Marina (had been to Spotorno and Finale Ligure few years ago) and liked it very much.

Maybe a little be too crowed for my liking (we were there for two weeks at the end of june), the beach is not big, but there'sthe sand and not stones.

The centre is very nice, many small and interesting shops and, if you have a sweet tooth, I'll let you know where to go and buy Baci di Diano: …mondodelgusto.it/2010/… and Gobeletti: …blogspot.it/2011/05/de-amicis-ed-i-gobelett…

Should you go there, don't miss Cervo; it's easily reachable by bus (it takes about 10 minutes): http://www.cervo.com/
