Reviews & ratings Paris - Nice
"Rail trip from Nice to Paris."James Henry g.
Had to catch the train very early, about 07.34. We had not eaten breakfast as we were going to have a bite on the train. There were announcements made but none in english so we made our way to the buffet car for breakfast only to find that it was closed for some reason (Possibly a flood). there was a mess all over the carriage which was never cleaned up throughout the whole journey. So we had nothing to eat or drink until we reached Paris nearly six hours later. (Very poor) The only plus was that the train was on time.
"Rail trip Paris to Amsterdam"James Henry g. 09/09/2014
Nice comfortable train which departed and arrived on time. Would certainly travel on this train again.
"Paris to Nice Ville"Hazel d. 11/08/2014
This is really an easy site to use. I would only suggest you ensure that North American users use the right size paper to print their tickets. I didn't realize that our Car/Voiture number wasn't printed clearly. We were lucky, but it could cause issues for anyone who didn't notice.
