Venice to Nice by train

We are a family of 5 with children aged from 11 to 7, travelling from Venice to Nice in April 13. I am finding it very difficult to find a flight between Venice and Nice that is either not riduculous in travel time or time of arrival e.g. 11pm. I think that we will have to catch the train but I am also having trouble to find information about train schedules, cost etc. If anyone could give advice it would be apreciated.

If you could go the day before or day after, EasyJet has cheap flights (9PM arrival).

For train, you can use http://www.trenitalia.com/ to price Venice>Ventimiglia . Right now there are discount (nonrefundable) fares available but these can sell out. The regional train from Ventimiglia to Nice will run about 7 euros and you would buy that at the station.

As Reply 1 says, use http://www.trenitalia.com/ changing to English by clicking the UK flag at the top of the page, and entering Venezia S. Lucia to Ventimiglia. There is still a connection at €18 on your date, but the earlier departures have already sold out at this price.

Ventimiglia-Nice is €7.10 - no advance reductions and no seat reservations, and these French trains are every 30 minutes until mid-evening when they become less frequent …ter-sncf.com/Images/Paca/Tridion/fiche_04_2… - Buy these tickets at the station booking office in Venice or Ventimiglia.

There is also a direct Air France/Alitalia flight on April 13, departing 11.50 from Marco Polo airport and arriving at 13.05, currently on sale for €60 on Air France's Italian site and I imagine at similar prices elsewhere.
