“Better that anticipated”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

...if you forget about the headphones and just enjoy the view as the trains climbs up the hill with the breathtaking view over most of Nice.

The staff is nice, train runs precisely and the price is affordable. Approx EUR 12 (USD 15) for one adult + one child.

Tip: Take the train up to the castle - and walk down. Even Americans can survive the walk :-)

“Great overview”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2011

What an easy way to get an orientation of the city - do this when you first arrive. There is just one stop- at the top of a hill for fabulous view and well stocked tourist shop (actually some good local oil paintings).

“Cheap & cheerful, hang on tight!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2011

Good value for money at 7€, ideal if you're too lazy/young/old to walk but definitely not comfortable. It goes to all the main points of interest and allows you 15 mins on the chateau hill to take photos of the amazing views.

“The easiest way to see Nice”

The easiest way to see a part of the old town and reach easily the castle hill is the train so don't miss it

“Brilliant overview of Nice, and kids love it too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Great to see round Nice on the tourist train. It laves from opposite the Meridien hotel on the Promenade DES Anglais. The highlight for us was the trip up to the top of the castle gardens with amazing views of the Nice Port, and right the way across the Promenade, and beyond. Take a picnic and spend a while up here. There's even a park for the kids.
