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 trains each day from Nice to Genoa. These are EuroCity services operated by Thello. Additional connections are available with a change of train at Ventimiglia, but this adds around an hour to the journey time.

    The entire route from Nice to Genoa follows the Mediterranean coast, first skirting the Côte d’Azur through Monaco and Menton to the Italian border and then travelling east along the Lugurian coast (the Riviera di Ponente) to Genoa. For the best of the sea views, look out the windows on the right-hand side of the train. You’ll cross the French-Italian border in a tunnel between Menton and Ventimiglia.

    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’ fares), it is worth booking as soon as tickets go on sale.

    The direct Thello trains from Nice to Genoa 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 services within Italy. This is not a high-speed service. Trains on the Nice to Genoa route make 10 intermediate stops, taking about three hours for the journey. The train departs from Nice Ville station and arrives in Genoa at Piazza Principe, from where there are good onward connections to stations across Italy.
