About getting to Nice by Train
Travelling by train is perfect for those who want to sit back, relax and see a bit more of the countryside and the region that surrounds Nice.
Nice's main SNCF railway station is located on Avenue Thiers and serves most major French cities, including Paris, as well as smaller towns and villages along the French Riviera. It is known simply as Gare de Nice-Ville.
There are three other main stations in the city. The train station of Nice Saint-Augustin is located opposite Pheonix Park and the Nice Cote d'Azur airport. It links the south-west of Nice to the centre of the city. Nice-Riquier is the main station to the north of the Old Town and Port of Nice and is on the main line out of Nice and along the coast to Monaco, Menton and on to Italy. The station of Nice-Saint-Roch is the first stop after you leave Gare de Nice-Ville on the Train des Merveilles that takes you north-east into the mountains of the Alpes-Maritimes.
