“Great way to see the town”

Petit Train de Grasse
Ranked #1 of 2 Transportation in Grasse
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 September 2012

We had been around the Perfume Museum and decided to catch the little train to see the sights. It took about 40 minutes with on-board commentary which was very interesting. The train goes right through the centre of the town, past restaurants and up very tight, winding streets and with some excellent views over the mountains and so there were lots of good photo opportunities. It certainly saved on the legs as the town is quite hilly and hot (in August) so I would definitely recommend this as a relaxing break to your day in Grasse.

My son and I used this during a 10 day stay in the South of France, and it isn't really any different from the kind of road-train that you find in any other tourist attraction (though it is noticeably better than the awful one in Cannes). The views of Grasse that the route offers are quite nice, but in more than a few places the route runs through some of the towns more dilapidated & congested streets, with all of the more majestic sights easily accessible on foot anyway. Overall: mildly recommended.

While its not the world's best tourist activity, it did give us a feel for Grasse's old town. Huge compliments to the driver - how he made it through those very small streets and tight corners with three train cars is beyond me. Our 3 yr old son would like to go again but we'll save the next petit train ride for Cannes or Antibes.
