Different stations in Nice-causing confusion

Hi,
Am looking to travel from Nice to Ventimiglia on Friday morning (19/7) for a connection to Milan. I'm slightly confused by the stations in Nice-is Gare de Nice Saint Augustin the station I would be departing if I left in time to get to Ventimiglia by 8.15? I was told by someone that Nice Ville was the station I'd be departing from, but after a search it does not come up as a departure station in time to get me to Ventimiglia. Any help would be appreciated, mainly clearing up whether the train would depart Nice Saint Augustin.

    Hi Sam,

    Rest assured, trains from Nice to Ventimiglia do depart from the Nice Ville station, which is considered the main station in Nice. These trains will depart from the Ville station about 5 to 10 minutes after they depart from the St. Augustin station.

    The ticket we issue would be valid for your clients to board at any of those stations in Nice.

  • Hi!

    I have a related question. I have a ticket from Ventimiglia to Nice Ville. Jeff, you said that it doesn't matter at which station in Nice you board. Is the same true for getting off? Can I travel to Nice St Augustin with my ticket or will I have to buy another ticket to get from Ville to St Augustin?

    Also, is it possible to get a direct train from St Augustin to Marseille or do I have to go from Ville?

      Hi May,

      Yes, even though your ticket shows 'Nice Ville' as the arrival station, you can remain on the train until it arrives into the St. Augustin station. Once again, the trains from Ventimiglia to Nice will stop at the St. Augustin station just about 5 to 10 minutes after they are scheduled to arrive into the Ville station. You will not have to purchase another ticket to cover you for the portion of this route between the Ville station and the St. Augustin station.

      The direct trains from Nice to Marseille actually do not stop at the St. Augustin station. The direct trains from Nice to Marseille only depart from the Ville station in Nice.

      From the St. Augustin station in Nice, you could take a regional train to Antibes or Cannes, where you would be able to connect up with another train that will take you to Marseille.

      You would purchase the tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. For the route that involves a train change en route, you would just piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search for trains from Nice to Antibes or Cannes and then another search for connecting trains from Antibes or Cannes to Marseille).
