  Provence coastal rail network
by NiceLife

The coastal rail-line puts everything Provence within reach of Nice. Almost.

The Eastern Riviera and Provence: want to know why you can't get a train to St Tropez? Because it doesn't go there. But isn't St Tropez just next to Cannes? Its actually around thirty miles away.

Can you get to Marseilles for a day trip? Yes, but be prepared for a three and a half hour ride - consult the map. And Toulon? Yes. How far is Aix en Provence? A long long way, but the beautiful old capital of Provence is worth the effort.

Is it true that "L'on y danse, sur le pont d'Avignon"? That you will have to find out for yourself.
