Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Other journeys to Nice View all journeys to Nice

Direct high-speed trains link Paris and Nice. Several TGV Duplex trains leave Paris each day for Nice and other cities on the French Riviera. Note the the direct night train from Paris to the Riviera ran for the last time in late 2017.

TGV

The route followed by the TGVs cuts south-east from Paris, skirting Burgundy and crossing the River Rhône east of Lyon. Almost before you know it, you are in Provence. Just short of Marseille, the TGV to Nice leaves the high-speed line and follows a traditional rail route east along the Mediterranean coast to Nice. This route is usually served by double-deck TGV Duplex trains, so book a seat on the upper deck for the best views.

Paris to Nice

The direct TGV services to Nice depart from Paris Gare de Lyon station. These TGV trains (usually double-deck TGV Duplex units) run non-stop to at least Valence in the Rhône Valley; many don’t make a single stop until well into Provence. There’s a nice balance to this journey: an impressive high-speed run at the start, giving a sense of real progress towards the south of France, then a more leisurely pace for the last couple of hours as the train cruises the Riviera coast. Arrival in Nice is at Nice Ville station, from where it is a 15-minute walk to the beachfront promenade.
