Nice to Ventimiglia - train info?

We are trying to plan a DIY trip from Nice to Ventimiglia on Friday, October 14th. In looking at raileurope.com it seems like we can get there, but we can't get back via train. This seems a little odd. Anyone have any tips? Ideally we'd like to stop in Menton on the way back.

Thanks!

Never use Rail Europe - use national train companies.

The full schedules are here …ter-sncf.com/Images/Paca/Tridion/FH04-Mande…

A ticket from Ventimiglia to Nice permits you to stop off in Menton on the same day,

Buy in Nice - €6.75 each way, from booking office or with cash only from ticket machines, as US cards not accepted.

The trains have no reservable seats so cannot sell out.

Go to Gare Nice Ville and to avoid 30 minutes queuing at the busy counter, get a ticket from the auto vend machines which costs €6.60 each way. Trains are frequent ( more than one every hour) and journey time is 45 minutes. Get off at Menton and walk twenty minutes along the prom to the next station which is Menton Garavan. ( Beulieu sur Mer is a nice stop, too). If you eat in Ventimiglia, beware of the service charge which isn`t posted on the menu boards and can be 17%.

Kryz24: Please do not ask the same question twice. This has been dealt with in your other thread.
