The train des Merveilles also goes from Vingtimille to Cuneo in Italy. Trains are every 2 hours and the journey is 2 hours. Cost - just over 7 Euros one way!!
This was an astonishing journey we did - recommended by an Italian gentleman - we got on the train at Vingtimille and went up in to the French Alps and the train stops at some stations that the train from Nice does not go to. You start and end in Italy but the journey itself criss crosses the French Alpes and finishes in Cuneo... Another writer has said make sure to stop in Tende and fully agree with that. Cuneo is about one hour on and is a very odd town. We returned to Tende and strolled around there only to find out that we should have gone there first! However for the sheer excitement of seeing the Alpes from the train it was all worth it.
