Bus 100 (Nice - Monaco - Menton) is a very good option and costs a mere 1.50 € (Jan 2014). It runs every 15 minutes mostly, and the trip takes 30-45 minutes. It takes an absolutely scenic route along the coast, passing through seaside towns such as Villefranche and Beaulieu. (There's also express bus 100X which takes the motorway and costs 4 € (2012); ...

I have just returned from Nice/Monte. Great trip and good advice given here. As of Nov 31 2013 the bus costs €1.50 each way and starts just off Garibaldi Square, pay cash. Also, the Nice day pass has changed. It is a 24 hour pass that costs €5 and can be used on all trams and buses in Nice except buses 98 and 99. What does this mean? The only bus that ...

There are four different companies that visit the two islands on a regular schedule, but unfortunately, none of them visits both islands; 3 of them depart from the Quai Laubeuf. Your only chance would be to charter your own boat and to book a round trip. Since both trips are relatively cheap by ferry (around 15 EUR) and short (15 mins), it might turn out to ...

We returned from the Cannes-Nice-Monaco Trip in May 2014, and the answers given above have helped us. Although the starting point of Bus 100 has changed as rightly pointed out in answer by Ger: The 100 bus to Monaco now leaves from the Promenades des Arts stop outside the Musée d'Art Moderne/Contemporain near the corner of Av. St. Sebastian and ...

I have just returned from Nice, Easter 2014. The 100 bus to Monaco now leaves from the Promenades des Arts stop outside the Musée d'Art Moderne/Contemporain near the corner of Av. St. Sebastian and Traverse Garabaldi. On arriving in Monaco we got off at Places D'Armes and walked up the pedestrian hill to the Prince Palace, then around to the Cathedral ...

We are usually traveling with our 3 year old kids. In all other area's of France we just go unprepared. Finding either a bed & breakfast or a holiday rental is relatively easy and in the summer we just go camping. This is not the case in the south of France, especially in the summer months. I have good experiences with Google maps and Tripadvisor to ...

Since this area is very touristy, not speaking French is not a major problem. You shall find people speaking a least bit of English in most places. I do not really know a place to stay that would be more kid-friendly (how old is the kid, do you expect specific facilities such as playground near the place?). Since you will need a car to move around anyway, ...

A couple of days ago I compiled all the practical transportation options for a Nice to Monaco trip. I though you guys might like to see all the possibilities, costs and advantages of each option. As I grew up in Monaco, I have tested all the possibilities for you, from the bus to the bike trip... SUMMARY of the information available on the link. Nice ...

I just returned from doing this day trip as well, great advice here! So as of January 2014, nothing has changed. The new bus stop to get the 100 is at the southeast corner of Garibaldi Square (or Place Garibaldi in French) on Rue Catherine Segurane. The best stop to get off and back on the 100 in Monaco is Places D'Armes. It's right next to the Place du ...

France doesn't have much in the way of long-distance buses. Long-distance transportation is based on the train network, with regional and local buses to connect towns and villages that lack a railway line. There are low-cost long-distance (slower, but cheaper than the train), but almost all of them are for international destinations, because until recently, ...

There is regular train service between Montpellier and Carcassonne. In fact, on http://en.voyages-sncf.com I found a direct train from Barcelona to Carcassonne which is about 45 to 50 € depending on the day and ticket type. That train takes about 2.5 hours.
