train tichets for touring cannes-antibes-SPV-nice back to ca

We are taking a cruise which will stop in cannes from 8:00AM-11:00pm. we are planning to take train to Antibes, back on train to cagnes sur mer, bus400 to SPV then bus400 to nice and finally

train back to cannes at 8:00PM or so. Is it possible? If it is,should we buy train ticket round trip from Cannes to Nice? or there is a daypass to cover our trip.

Thaks for the help.

If your trip is during the summer months after June 1 you will be able to buy a one day go anywhere train pass - the Pass Isabelle - in 2011 this cost 12 euro. A round trip Cannes / Nice or two singles will cost a little less than this and you can break your journey anywhere but may be slightly more messy.

Pay separately 1 euro on the buses.

A single fare from Cannes to Nice is currently 6.40 euros/ return 12.80, so the Carte Isabelle at 12 euros would be both cheaper and more convenient.

IMO your itinerary is very busy but possible if you follow a strict timetable and be sure to allow extra time for travel delays.

Check that the trains are running normally before you set out.

If they are not, I would suggest that you leave either St Paul de Vence or Nice off your agenda.

As a fallback, if there's a rail strike,or severe problems on the railway, the number 200 bus will take you to Antibes and back from Cannes ( 30 mins and 1 euro each way). You could also take a local bus from Cannes up to the perched village of Vieux le Cannet (approx 15 mins ride) for some medieval charm, and/or take a ferry out from Cannes port to one of the Isles de Lerins, plus spend more time exploring Cannes itself.

Enjoy !
