For a ride through the relatively narrow streets of Vieux Cannes (Le Suquet), board the train at a clearly designated site along La Croisette on its seaward side. Both tours depart every hour; each lasts between 30 and 40 minutes and each costs between 5€ and 6€ for adults, and between 2.50€ and 3€ for children under 10, depending on the tour. (The tour of the old town is the less expensive.) A combination ticket granting access on both of the two tours (which can be enjoyed on separate days, if you prefer) costs 8€ for adults and 5€ for children under 10. For details, call tel. 06-14-09-49-39.

Cannes is a very expensive place but the mini train is a great way to see Cannes (the glamorous places and the more traditional ones) without spending much.

Straight out of the harbour, there's the train. Takes about 45 minute tour of all the main sights in and around the town. There can't be a better way of getting a feel for the place and getting your bearings. Multi lingual commentary via headphones.

Cheesy commentary (especially when Vogue came blasting out as we went down the main shopping street) made it an amusing way to see the city. The stop at the top of the hill for panoramic view was great. The driver was friendly. The only complaint...More

My husband and I bought tickets and rode the Petit Train while visiting Cannes in May, after seeing positive ratings on the TripAdvisor site. The staff forced 4 adults on each row, when 3 would have been comfortable. The audio headphones provided did not work....More

Easy way to get an overview of Cannes. Comfortable and informative. Enjoyed the commentary & music through headphones. Got some great pictures from the train as we went from the port to Le Suquet and along La Croisette. Film Festival activities added to the pleasure....More

This train picks you up at the port and takes about 45 minutes around the town. The staff are a little abrupt. Leg room leaves a little to be desired. Keep your arms in as the train driver seems to just miss cars and traffic...More

Well it cost 10€ a head so not a lot lost however I have found a Ryan air flight with more leg room so if you want to kill a hour and are under four foot go for it.

Definitely the easy way to see the key sites of Cannes. The little train goes along the promenade, along the main shopping street and through the old town. At 10 euros a head it's really good value. We found one just by the cruise terminal....More

There were two at a time I think. Not sure how many it held and depends on time of day/year as to whether or not you have to wait. We went in June and we had to wait.

No need to book ahead. We just walked up to the tram and there was someone there to take our payment.

It stops at Suquet for about 15 mins. Amazing views all around Cannes. You can take photos while on the move if you get an outside seat.
