Transport in Monaco

Contents

Rail transport

Railways:
total: 1.7 km (SNCF operates service through Monaco Monte Carlo station)
standard gauge: 1.7 km 1.435-m gauge

The track portion is now totally underground on the Monegasqe territory, and is operated by the SNCF. It links Nice to Ventimiglia (Italy) going through the principality, and was opened in 1868. Two train stations were used: Monaco and Monte-Carlo. The railway tracks were transformed into an underground section in two steps. The first, in 1964, with a 3500 metre tunnel (mostly on the French territory), made the Monte-Carlo station redundant. The second step, as of 1999, was to build a 3 km-long tunnel linked to the first one, and allowed the new "underground train station of Monaco-Monte Carlo" to open.[1] This stations is served by international trains (including the French TGV) and regional trains ("TER").
