All passengers are accommodated in sleeping cars. Very comfortable new carriages were introduced on the route in early 2015. There is a restaurant car on the train.
The journey recalls the heyday of the Riviera, when Russia’s well-to-do elites would winter in the resorts along the northern fringes of the Mediterranean. That regular Riviera trade was interrupted by the First World War and the Russian Revolution, but it has seen a revival in the last couple of decades.
Fares on this route were greatly reduced in early 2016. Please bear in mind that we need a couple of weeks to mail out postal tickets.
