Take it before you sight see. We took it after so did not gain much other than an enjoyable hour. A tad expensive, 20 euros for 2, but fun to be on the petit train

Well worth the 10 euros each.A pleasant way to get your bearings and learn a little about Nice. The view from the Castle Hill was stunning and the train stops here for 10 minutes for pictures.

We enjoy a ride on the petit train & decide to stay longer at the view point (colline du chateau) & took the next train

This is a cute train that explores the old city, the port and up to the castle. It is in many languages so at least you can understand the history of old nice and the port.

Worth it just to avoid the walk (hike) up Castle Hill where the views of Nice and surroundings are terrific.

One needs to just walk, walk & walk around the old town, the 10 Km long promenade & the best bet is to take the Open train & experience & enjoy Nice & the Cote de Azur area. It's a must
