Train Monaco → Cannes
Duration 53 - From $14
Known for “grace,” sophistication and style Let's say you've been traveling through France's quiet countryside, stopping at lavender fields and sampling local wines. "This is relaxing," you say to yourself, but it would be nice to wear that hot little number you've packed in your suitcase. Where to go ? For a dose of fast cars, high rollers, haute couture and hot yachts, look no further than Monaco. This tiny principality is the second-smallest country in the world ; only the Vatican is more diminutive. Bordered on three sides by France, the fourth – the sparkling Mediterranean. This is where the ultra-rich and uber-stylish come to stay, play and bank. Monaco is one of the world's only countries to not levy income tax on individuals. Even if you're neither rich nor famous, or plan on opening a savings account, there's plenty to do – and that includes people watching. Learn more about Monaco
Living the high life If Nice is the capital of the French Riviera, Cannes is its center stage. In this city of stars, meager plebeians mingle with celebrities, the nouveaux-riche and old aristocracy under the haute Mediterranean sky. Whether you pronounce the city "Can" or "Cahn" it's one city you should "do" in your lifetime – if only to see how the other half excessively lives (personal views aside.) The city is awaiting your arrival from the moment you step on the train anywhere along the Cote D'Azur. The landscape opens up like a tease – gliding along the coast, tempting you with sexy beaches and foamy waves gently lapping at the shore. Learn more about Cannes
