Train or plane?
Will be traveling in late July from Amsterdam to Paris and then from Paris to Nice with wife and 3 children ages 13,12 and 3.

Train or Plane? Would appreciate your help.

If you have the time,train is a good bet,for the kids would love it.
Preferably daytime travel.France's famous TGV from Paris to Nice is an experience.

If you have the time, train for both.
If your schedule is tighy : train for Amsterdam Paris and plane for Paris Nice.

IF you fly, be aware of luggage weight restrictions.

You can check budget possibilities at

Personally, I would consider doing both segments by high speed train.

Hi C,

Check for train schedules and prices. The 3-yr old goes free.

Check for cheap airfare.
