Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey, based on how far in advance you book.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

30 day advance and 7 day advance prices are found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from today. These prices fluctuate daily based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price on a busy Saturday in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey on a Tuesday in winter.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. Taking the train from Marseille to Milan has become easier since the launch of a new direct EuroCity service linking the two cities. This service is operated by Thello. This thrice-weekly direct train leaves Marseille late morning on Mondays and mid-afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays. The journey time is 7 hrs 20 mins. If you wish to travel at other times, there are plenty of alternative options every day of the week. This normally requires a change of train in Nice and sometimes also in Ventimiglia.

    The Thello EuroCity train runs east to the Côte d'Azur and traverses the Principality of Monaco. You'll cross the French-Italian border between Menton and Ventimiglia. Until Genoa, the entire journey to Milan broadly follows the Mediterranean coast. For the best of the sea views, sit on the right side side of the train. From Genoa, the train heads north-east to Milan.

    Bookings for this route normally open three to four months in advance of travel. To get the cheapest fares on the direct Thello trains (called 'Smart'), it is worth booking as soon as tickets go on sale. Note that there are no services at all on this route from 1 Nov to 10 Dec 2016.
