Train des Pignes
Train des Pignes information
Chugging between the mountains and the sea, the Train des Pignes is one of Provence’s most picturesque train rides. The 151km track between Nice and Digne-les-Bains rises to 1000m for breathtaking views as it passes through Haute-Provence’s scarcely populated backcountry.
The service runs four times a day and is ideal for a day trip inland. The beautiful medieval village of Entrevaux is just 1½ hours from Nice (return €23.60), perfect for a picnic and a wander through its historic centre and citadel.
