Paris to Nice Train

Can I purchase train tickets from Paris to Nice in the United States? Is there a website where I can do this? And does anyone know how much an overnight sleeper or couchette would cost?

Thanks.

Go to www.raileurope.com or do a search on trains to paris and you will find listings for other sources as well. In terms of cost, you pay for the train ticket as well as a supliment for the sleeper/couchette etc. It goes up depending upon which you purchase and whether or not you take first or second class. All of that info is available on raileurope. If you are traveling between now and the end of summer it is recommeded that you make reservations for your space, which, when done over hear costs another couple of dollars. Bon Voyage.

Go to www.sncf.fr. They have an english section of their website. Though they won't mail you tickets in the US, you can reserve directly and get them with your credit card from a machine in a paris train station. Perhaps not as convenient as raileurope but definitely less expensive.

What I think you missed in my previous post is that raileurope adds a fee to the cost of the ticket, so reserving through sncf.fr will save you money.
