Reviews & ratings Nice - Marseille
I loved the train travel. It was smooth, relaxing and basically hassle free. The service was very good considering the language barrier. I am really glad I booked this train ride. I would do it again next time I am in Europe. I would seriously consider train travel between the European countries as it is more convenient than catching flights despite the long travel times.
We had the tickets, but I was concerned that I had to do more with them, get them stamped or something, but information told me I was good to just board and use them. With these trains, you just wait in the area near the platforms (voies) and wait until the boards show which one your train will board from. Then there is a mad rush as everyone heads down a platform and onto a train. If you're coach 12, that can be a long way down the platform. Good smooth travel, quiet and fast.
I was quite disappointed as I paid for first class from Nice to Marseille and there was no first class carriage. No comfortable seats, no promised breakfast, just one class, what a waste of money.
The train was comfortable and clean. It was a convenient way to travel.
After travelling throughout Europe last year and recently, my husband and I have been extremely happy and impressed by the high speed rail system in Europe. The system is highly efficient, trains arriving on time, very comfortable and clean, arriving at your destination feeling very relaxed, not having had to wait at airports for hours and needing to go through tedious check-ins etc. Prices for tickets are very reasonable considering all of these reasons. We would highly recommend this mode of travel.
This was a very comfortable train journey. The train was clean, and the French staff very helpful.
We recently travelled second class on the TGV from Nice to Marseilles St Charles. The train was clean and tidy, although someone in another section found a spilled drink under their folding table (Nice surprise). The scenery on this trip is brilliant as the train passes along the cote d'azure. The one let down was that no-one seemed to know what to do with their luggage. Many people were travelling with large fully stuffed suitcases which didn't quite fit into the overhead racks. So peoples luggage protruded into the aisles or hung precariously from the overhead racks, while the purpose built luggage racks in the carriage vestibule were far from fully used. The lesson is that is is very easy to travel with carry on sized luggage in the carriage, leave your large suitcases in the vestibule.
