Getting to Cannes from Milan

Trenitalia logoWe often get requests about getting to Cannes from the Italian city of Milan, and the answer we often give is the train. Trenitalia runs two daily trains that take about  five hours and 20 minutes to cover the 350 kilometers.

Trenitalia “Smart Prices” start at about €15, although you can reasonably expect to pay more (I’ve only ever managed to get a quote of €50). Yu do need a reservation.

Some of the trains are run by Thello. Try them to see if the are special rates going, although they seem to have the same prices.

The other option is by plane, of course. Air France flies direct, and several others fly with one stopover. The cheapest price I could find with a quick search was €178 return with Swiss (a 3-hour journey) or €311 direct return with Air France (1-hour journey).

  1. The EUR 15 trains from Milano Centrale to Nice are available. You can reserve them online. That´s what I did.

    Trenitalia hasn´t sent any conformation email back (you have to register to reserve, and they´ll send you a confirmation for registring, but not for the ticket.. funny), but deducted it on my VISA. After some frantic calls to Trenitalia I got the number of Centrale station.

    A very nice lady called Roberta told me my reservation no. and that I´ll have to get the tickets at the Milano Intl. Ticket office (at the station). Well, we will see.

    Other than that, I have seen cheap tickets to Nice from several European cities (Munich, Stuttgart) on

    Have a safe travel!
