Train Price for an Old Guy

by Kokid08

I'll admit it! I turn 61 next week & everything is slowing down. I'm trying to find train fares for my wife & I but can't seem to figure them out. I show anywhere from 33 Eu. on up. I don't know weather that's for one or two, Round or One way trip and/or senior fares. We'd like to take a quick trip to Nice from Cannes while on a cruise stop. We also plan on a local tour of Cannes called "Big Tour". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

First, what website are you looking at?

Note: I am not real familiar with this trip, it having been many years since I was in Nice, but I can read the Web as well as anyone ;-)

I am looking at the official French website for the national railways at www.sncf-voyages.com (I can't remember if there are English pages here), and I see frequent trains from Cannes to Nice that take 30-40 minutes, with a standard fare (on many trains - not all, as there are different types) of 5.80 euro each way, 2nd class, and a senior discount fare of 4.40 euro each way 2nd class.

Now, I am not familiar with the French railways' rules on senior discounts - your age is OK (it's 60 and up), but they may or may not require a 'frequent flyer' card (for lack of a better term) that is available only to French residents (this is the case in Italy, for example). However, even at 5.80 euro each way (so, 11.60 euro round trip) without the discount, this is not so bad, huh?

You don't need first class for such a short trip, unless you're antisocial ( ;-) ). Many of these trains allow for reserved seats, but given the uncertainties of your schedule, I'd just go to the station in Cannes and take the next train. At that point, you may want to buy the return ticket as well, just to commit yourself to getting back by a certain time.

Try the following website:

http://www.voyages-sncf.com

1. Select départ: Cannes - gare de Cannes (06150)

2. Select arrivée: Nice - gare de Nice (06000)

3. Select date: Aller le . . .

4. Select: Continuer

5. On the next screen, notice item 2 and fill in the number of passengers and ages (60 et +). If your selections all look good, click: Rechercher

6. Fares are from 4 to 10 euros per person, each way for the 40 minute train ride.

Note: TER trains have no reservations, you purchase a ticket before boarding. TGV trains require a reservation, however this may be done anytime as long as seats are available. For best pricing and availability on TGVs, reserve early.

I would stick with the TER trains. The journey time Cannes to Nice is exactly the same as the flash TGV trains. The cost on the TER local trains is less and no worries about reserving seats, just turn up at the station, allow a few minutes to get a ticket from the ticket office or the machine and off you go!. There is a frequent service and do make sure you sit on the right hand side!

The normal TER fare is indeed €5.80 one-way from Cannes to Nice Ville. Make sure you to go Nice Ville, as the other Nice stations are not in the centre.

Have a good trip.

Thanks to everyone! I think I was intimidated because of the language. Anyway, I'll stick with the TER and venture out on our own. We have also found a site that advertises a "BIG TOUR" in Cannes that sounds pretty good. Thanks Again!

Ps.
Bill, You also helped me with my Rome questions!!

Travel Tips for Cannes

Lawn Bowl?

by kenningst

I was walking along the beach and saw a few local folks playing a game which look like lawn bowling except that they are not playing on a lawn also they are using metal balls. Not sure what it was but sure was interesting to watch them play.

The beaches at Cannes

by NiceLife

For beach with style - sunlounger and all important shade of a parasol, you are going to have to pay 20-30 euro and upwards on one of the many hotel owned private beaches. Here waiters will fetch you drinks at very inflated prices. However you can console yourself with the thought that the parasol has slowed skin-aging and delayed the onset of skin cancer by, ooh, a few hours. So you'd be unlikely to see the annual World Congress of Dermatologists held in Cannes, but just about every other industry is here

Or there are still small areas designated as Public Beach and the sea is free wherever you start from.

Luxury yachts.

by breughel

After the classical visit to the (quite banal) stairs of the Palais des Festivals it is worthwhile to walk on the right side of that Palais towards the "Jetée Albert Edouard" where are moored a number of luxury or super motor yachts. Access to the quay is free.
I have to warn visitors: if you find this ostentatious type of luxury difficult to accept in a world of great misery, you might be perplexed.
If you are interested in naval forms, techniques and economics you might enjoy your visit. A lot of people live from this luxury yacht industry, from the builders to the guys who daily clean the yachts.
From the recent Monaco Yacht Show it appears that there is no recession in this industry. There are more than 900 super yachts (more than 10 million € per ship) in construction. The best shipyards (USA, Italy and Netherlands) have 2 -5 years waiting lists. The yachts are also getting bigger, there is now a category of mega yachts (50 - 100 m length); the Vieux-Port of Cannes is too small for them.
It is a fact that these luxury yachts spend most of their time in chic harbours and much less on the high sea. When I see them I wonder how seaworthy they are.
On a stormy North Sea I might prefer a trawler to a luxury yacht.

"Visiting Cannes during 14th of July"

This was a great trip as I had right to see the fireworks made specially for 14th of July, national day of France. I took a ferry to Marguerite Island, has fun at BAOTI club, very select, then moved to LOVE club inside Noga Hilton. This was real fun. Laying on the beach, being invited to some parties is appreciable.

Cannes Festival 2006. The place where all stars are walking through...

"Nikki Beach"

Nikki Beach, the place to be during the day in Cannes. Lots of loud music and people dancing under a champagne's rain during the festival ...
