Train Nice → Dijon
Duration 6h17 - From $44
A nice start to the French Riviera “Vous êtes arrives à la gare de Nice !” are the exact words you would hear stepping out of the train and into the station of the French Riviera’s capital. Whichever direction you are arriving from, it’s hard not to notice the stunning landscape of the region. The city itself is the attraction. There’s no Eiffel Tower, no Big Ben, nary a Gothic Cathedral in sight. So what is there ? Beauty, energy and charm. From the cerulean sea to dining on fresh seafood at a plein-air café to staring at the art-deco facades and fabulous people, this is the Nice at its nicest. Not that there aren’t tourist attractions. Stop and smell the blooms at the Cours Saleya flower market. Inspect the canvases of Matisse at the eponymous museum. Nice is only second to Paris in the number of museums and galleries it holds. Just pick your pleasure and pack your artistic eye. Learn more about Nice
Pardon me, but we ask you don’t pass on Dijon This word "Dijon" conjures up the image of a pseudo-sophisticated old man in the back of a limo, asking a passerby if he has a certain mustard. Get this out of your head. The historic capital of the Burgundy region will allure and captivate all of your senses, just like a fine Dijon mustard. Use your France Rail Pass, or Eurail France-Switzerland Pass and easily arrive into Gare de Dijon-Ville from Paris, Lyon or Lausanne in less than two hours thanks to the high-speed TGV. A few blocks from the rail station is the Dijon tourist office at 15 Cour de la Gare near place Darcy. Here you can get information and a brochure on where to pick up the "Owl's Trail." This self-guided tour brings you to most tourist sites in Dijon. The route is marked on the sidewalk by brass tiles featuring a little owl. When you come to a point of interest there is a number marked on the ground. Look up the number in your brochure for more information on that particular sight. (All cities should work like this.)

"I took the train not realizing it stopped at every town and village along the way. Made for a long train ride, But I was comfortable enough and booking well in advance was cost effective "
