Attraction details
Owner description: For a ride through the relatively narrow streets of Vieux Cannes (Le Suquet), board the train at a clearly designated site along La Croisette on its seaward side. Both tours depart every hour; each lasts between 30 and 40 minutes and each costs between 5€ and 6€ for adults, and between 2.50€ and 3€ for children under 10, depending on the tour. (The tour of the old town is the less expensive.) A combination ticket granting access on both of the two tours (which can be enjoyed on separate days, if you prefer) costs 8€ for adults and 5€ for children under 10. For details, call tel. 06-14-09-49-39.

It was raining quite heavily on our day in Cannes. We jumped on this and paid 10 EUR each. It took us around the town, past the shops and up the hill to the old church.Had earphones to tell us what we we were seeing. Took about 60 mins.

Wow, what a great little train. We took the 1 hour trip. In and out of little streets, along the sea front and Marina ( some amazing boats moored here $$$) and up to the top of the hill to see the old church and the amazing views. Some info on where Movies were filmed, the hotels Stars stay at etc. Individual headsets for commentary. The train seats 4 to a seat and has a roof so protected from the sun. The staff also helped a wheelchair bound person aboard. 10 Euros p.p and well worth it for an overall look. Located along from the Tourist info building next to the Casino.

After walking the Cannes Promenade to view the yachts and outstanding hotels and shops we took the “Cannes Cinema Tour” mini train (EU10 each for the Big Tour). There are three separate routes, History Tour and Croisette Tour at 35 minutes each and the Big Tour lasting 60 minutes. This was a very worthwhile tour lasting about an hour and taking us to the less travelled streets and to a church located on a mount overlooking the city. The train is equipped with a location activated narrative that is available in eight languages using onboard headsets. This is a recommended tour activity.

For the first time in my life I got used to difficulties in moving due to some problems at my sciatic nerve. I was used to walk a lot together with my wife and a Traveller Guide. This time, no way!
So, the choice of the little train was somehow forced. Nonetheless, I could appreciate the good introduction and explanations provided during the Trip (take the complete one!). It's more than one hour and, at the end, you have a good introduction. Then, you can choose what you want to deepen into details. With the car ( and good patience :-) you can drive through almost all Cannes and Payment Parkplaces are reasonable and close to each crucial point.
Enjoy Cannes... it deserves a stay.

This is a good way to see some highlights of Cannes, and for just €10 per person (capacity is about 50 passengers). In just under an hour, the exclusive shopping area, the extensive condominium district, and the impressive old city are traveled at the pace of slow traffic. Our only complaint (and the main reason for a mediocre rating) is that they moved the start/end point between morning and afternoon but without notice of the change! As a result, about a dozen of us waited for an hour for a train that did not arrive. Finally, we located a Tourist Information Office and we were sent a couple of miles to an alternate point ... Rather annoying!
