All aboard the Train des Merveilles
Panoramas to discover in comfort
The Train des Merveilles was inaugurated in 1928 after work was started in 1883. Its itinerary covers around a hundred kilometres and crosses several exceptional structures, among them 100 bridges and viaducts and as many tunnels and retaining walls. From Nice to Tende, you will go through the Paillon and Roya-Bévéra valleys. Another form of transport for your holidays in the Alpes-Maritimes with its 12 train stops. An unusual feature: the railway line goes from sea-level to 1,000 metres! The TER train is now air-conditioned, and you can travel in comfort. You can even take your bike. Bonus: make the most of the commentary by the guide-lecturer on board in season, every day in July / August / September and weekends at the end of June and October; departure at 9:16 am!
