Best way to travel from Paris to Nice

Can anyone tell me if it is better to go from Paris to Nice return trip by train or by plane. I am staying six days in Paris with my husband and would like to go to Nice. We fly from Paris back home so I need to either take the train and stay one night in Paris or take the airplane to Charles de Gaule in the morning to catch my plane at 2 pm. I know there are some cheap flights in easyjet, but where can I check the train fares and timetables? Thank you.

Although I enjoy taking the train in France, it is a 6.5 hour trip from Paris to Nice. I have flown and it was less than 1.5 hours. Of course you have to figure in the rest of the time at the airport, but I still vote for flying.

We took a night train - left around 9 p.m. and arrived at 8 a.m. That way we didn't waste any sightseeing time getting to an airport.
