Marseille to Genoa by train

Scroll down to content

Hell is a two-hour battle with your GPS when you’ve got a train to catch. Beware towns with numerous roads bearing the same name spread across different postcodes. Somehow we boarded on time.

We took the coastal rail from Marseille to Genoa. I’d recommend this stunning trip to anyone travelling between south of France and Italy.

The train sweeps through the vineyards of Cotes de Provence before passing by the mansions, super yachts and beaches of Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco-Monte Carlo, then crossing the border into Italy. Mountainous ranges dotted with hillside villages and peaktop churches and castles flank the north of the track most of the way. On the southside, gaudy rows of resort sunbrollies shaded much of the narrow beaches. The choppy Mediterranean kept swimmers at bay but gave a few surfers some fun. Occasionally a small island hosting a stone villa or two broke the horizon.

The 400km or so journey took 5 hr 40 minutes for 60 euro in a second class carriage, which was mostly empty and pretty comfortable.

Here are some photos from the journey in chronological order.
