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.

Wonderland TRAIN turns 10 Saturday 15 September 2012: 9 h 24: station of Nice with a speaker guide who comment on this spectacular route rail line which will take you to the gates of the Mercantour.
10 h 22: stop at Breil on Roya to visit the Ecomuseum of the high country and transportation. 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.

Recommended reservation to the: 0 800 11 40 23.
Pass €5 (train tickets) valid from 15 to 22/09/12. It allows an unlimited traffic on the Nice_Tende line throughout the day. Ticket to withdraw in the AM stations.
