Gare de Cannes-Ville in 2010

Gare de Cannes or Cannes-Ville is the main railway station for the French Southern city of Cannes. It is situated on the Marseille–Ventimiglia railway.

History[edit]

The station opened on 10 April 1863 when the line from Marseille to Cagnes-sur-Mer opened to passengers. The station was a small elegant building with a rooftop spanning both tracks of the main line. In 1870 the line from Grasse is opened. The engine depot was moved to La Bocca in 1880 and a goods station opened in 1883. With the lengthening of trains, the old station proved to be too small for the growing town. Work on a new station started in 1962. The station building was subsequently replaced by the present structure in 1975. The line is still outdoors but projects exist to bury the line, as at Monaco.
