Paris to Nice Train Tickets

Travel from Paris to Nice by train and discover France’s enchanting city by the sea! SNCF’s ultra-smooth TGV high-speed trains are among the fastest in the world, capable of whisking you from capital city to Mediterranean coast in less than 6 hours’ time. Along the way, you’ll experience superior comfort from your First or Second Class seat as you enjoy the array of exceptional onboard services at your disposal.

The unofficial capital of the French Riviera, Nice offers a little something for everyone.
