Prices explained

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. There are three direct EuroCity trains each day from Milan to Nice, taking 4 hrs 45 mins for the journey. The service is operated by Thello. The train first tracks south-west from Milan to reach the coast of Liguria at Genoa. From here the entire route to Nice broadly follows the Mediterranean coast. You’ll cross the Italian-French border between Ventimiglia and Menton. Not long thereafter you’ll traverse the territory of the Principality of Monaco. For the best of the sea views, sit on the left side of the train.

    Bookings for this route normally open four months in advance of travel. To get the cheapest fares on the direct Thello trains (called 'Smart'), it is worth booking a couple of months in advance.

    The direct Thello trains from Milan to Nice leave from Milan Centrale station. The trains are classified as EuroCity services, but in terms of their design and on-board facilities, they are broadly similar to the Frecciabianca trains used on domestic routes within Italy. This is not a high-speed service, with trains on the Milan to Nice route making 13 or 14 intermediate stops. Arrival in Nice is at Nice Ville station.
