TRAIN DES MERVEILLES-NICE

Jump to last reply

Below is a internet translation from the french of interesting journey from Nice to Tende.
I did the journey a few years ago and found it really enjoyable and not expensive.
It is a beautiful scenic ride into the alps. I went direct to Tende and spent more time there in the museum. I want to go back and visit Breil o Roya.

You will find rare pieces on the history of transportation in PACA (locomotives, tramways and the first "cars" (cars) of the Train of wonders.) A tribute to the men who built roads and tracks the top nice country.
11: 17 am: the Train of wonders again, direction inside.
11: 56 am: arrival at inside for a musical aperitif offered.
Up to 17 h: Animations and folk groups.
You can also enjoy an area of landscaped picnic and a space of inflatable structures for children games.
16 h 06: departure of the Train to Tende to join Nice at 17: 49.
or 17 h 01: departure of the Train to Tende to join Nice at 18: 58.
