The train at a station en route – Arnot.


Each day a ‘vintage’ (built in 1977) train ploughs its way down narrow guage railway tracks between Digne-les-Bains and Nice and back – four times to be exact. Tourists and locals flock to use the service. A full trip takes 4 hours but we like to stop off at Entrevaux a medieval village at the half-way mark; have a lunch in the village square and then re-board to get back to Digne by sunset.

The price is 16.50€ per person for this trip and WELL worth it. It’s great fun and the scenery is,well, spectacular.

Chugging along the tracks – the view from the driver’s cabin.

Spring and Autumn are great times to do this trip when the scenery, foliage and weather are at their best. The trains are not air-conditioned!

Something to do in Entrevaux – a vintage motorcycle museum.
