Train des Pignes
Train des Pignes information
Chugging between the mountains and the sea, the narrow-gauge railway Train des Pignes is one of Provence’s most picturesque rides. Rising to 1000m, with breathtaking views, the 151km track between Nice and Digne-les-Bains passes through Haute Provence’s scarcely populated back country.
The service runs five 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.
