Trains around the coast

Looking to explore a few surrounding towns\cities of the riviera. Does anybody know if you can buy a train ticket that lasts you all trip or if you have to buy as you travel? And if so can you purchase online in advance?

Fares are cheap. Nice to Monaco 3.90 euro, to Cannes 7 euro. Break your journey anywhere on the line for no extra but make sure you validate your ticket in the platform machine each time. You can buy a one day go anywhere Pass Zou for 15 euro, this is best value to use on the Train des Merveilles into the mountains.

No need to purchase online, just turn up at the station and buy. The train station in JLP is very close to the town centre.

Hi, We are also interested in this. Can you tell me which train company it is? Not SNCF I don't think. Also where can we get the itinerary?. Thanks.

SNCF runs all the coastal trains . The commuter style train comes unter the title TER (Regional Express Train).

You will find all schedules and fares including downloadble PDFs on the " TER PACA"

site.

The Pass ZOU has been renamed One Day Pass (!) this year and now costs 16 euro.

Unfortunately the One day pass (which is only a summer offer ended on Sept 30) only extends from Cannes to Ventimiglia. . Normal fare from Nice to St Raphael is 12.50 euro each way.
