Villefranche by Train to Eze and Monaco

We are doing the Villefranche port on our own and will be taking the train to Eze and Monaco, I think. Has anyone purchased train tickets ahead of time? Do you think there is a need to other than just saving some time when we arrive? Anyone walk from the port to the train station before and know how many minutes it takes to walk it?
Thanks

We have connecting 10C so I would like a pin upgrade to 9A, bummed I didn't get offered one

I have 3 boys so I know what you mean about shopping and trying on clothes...and my oldest ones are tall and thin. My 17 year old is 6'2 and only 132 pounds! My 14 is just over 6' and weighs 146. Sigh. I hate shopping for myself, never mind teenage boys.

I have so much to do and so little time.....aaaaaa.

I did this in 2007 and it's super easy to take the train. There is no need to buy tickets in advance, no discount in advance and they are easy to get at the station. You can't take the train to Eze, as you probably know, so would have to take the train to Monaco and then a bus to Eze and another bus from Eze back to Villefranche. If you leave the tender station and walk along the (very scenic!) waterfront for maybe 5-7 minutes, keeping the water to your right, you will see stairs going up to the left and when you take those up you are right at the station.

It is definitely not you, they are notorious for not updating their info and having things available when they say they will. I look at their guidelines for availability as a suggestion. Just keep checking back.

I have also been trying to access tickets through the link my tour operator gave me. For almost 10 days I have been seeing the same dates available

I was also told I could book the Pisa Leaning Tower at 45 days out so I'm hoping I can book for both very soon.

Just a heads up...45 days is the old reservation dates for the Tower of Pisa. It has been changed to "between a maximum of 20 days and a minimum of 12 days prior to the date of the visit, subject to availability"

Hope this helps you so you aren't checking all the time for the dates to open up.

So excited, we are watching the Monaco Grand Prix right now! Can't wait till we are there, it looks so nice and sunny there at the moment and we are stuck in the cold and rain at home.

There is a ghost walk I'd like to book. It starts at the Arc de Triomf at 9:30 pm and concludes at 11:30 pm. We are staying at the Renaissance Barcelona. Safe to walk back? The train? We visited Barcelona in 07 and my memory fails me if we were out that late at night.

The Vatican finally updated its online ticket system with our date, just like a PP said, they added at least a week's worth of dates all at once. Also good news, it appears they've resolved their credit card issues because they now accept CC payment online (its required actually) so now you just have to show your voucher on arrival to get a ticket, and payment in cash is not necessary. This always makes me happy because I hate using cash and its annoying enough as it is to have to pay for our tour that day in several hundred euros cash, so at least with these tickets prepaid on CC thats one less thing to worry about!

Unhappy Not going :(

Unfortunately, I had to cancel this trip. You have no idea how upset I am by this. It was my bucket list dream trip.

I'm so sad for you . . . I had a family emergency once and had to cancel a cruise less than a week before (not a special one like this, but still . . .). I know how deeply disappointing it can be.
