Excursions from Nice

Chemins de Fer de Provence

Trundling old diesel trains ramble up the steep hillsides, delving into Nice's hinterland and onto the town of Digne-les-Bains. It’s a good day trip option, and a world away from the busy coast, especially in the height of summer when temperatures soar. Steam trains run every Sunday from early May to late October.

Telephone: +33 4 9703 8080.

Less than an hour away by train is the moneyed principality of Monaco. A spin on the roulette wheel at the famous Casino Monte Carlo is a bank busting optional extra, while a cheaper choice is the waterfront public swimming pool, which becomes an ice-skating rink in winter.
