There are lots of stops en route, including popular seaside resort towns like San Remo, Monaco, Nice, and Cannes. In other words, if you're traveling from Milan to any of the points along the Thello route, the train makes an easy and scenic option. Tickets on this route range from $34-62.

The trip from Milan to Marseille by train takes 7 hours 20 minutes to cover 325 miles (524 km), with the first trains leaving Milan at 7:05 a.m. and the last at 3:10 p.m.—there are only two trains on this journey per day. The 3:10 p.m. train arrives in Marseille at 10:29 p.m. The daytime trip gives you great views en route and the arrival means you're just in time for a nightcap before your head hits the pillow—or before you begin a night on the town.
