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 ...

Along the coast, there are trains, for example from Nice and area. The area is not that cheap either, but you can still try. The "ter" SNCF site has a map, and lists a train line along the coast until Cannes, which has pretty frequent trains. Prices are around 5-10 euros each way I would say. There are also buses that are cheaper. On the cg06.fr site of the ...

As you say, Monaco is part of Schengen Area, which means there are no internal border controls between Monaco and its only neighbour (France). So you certainly do not need a visa. No one's even going to look at your passport. Quoting Wikipedia: Monaco has an open border with France. Schengen laws are administered as if it were a part of France [...] ...

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 ...

The train between Nice and Monaco is a regularly scheduled, frequent local train service. Unless things are significantly different during the Grand Prix weekend, there is no way to reserve a particular seat so buying a ticket in advance wouldn't really help. I was there not too long ago and I think I booked the tickets online using the SNCF mobile app. ...

The closest places are in France, but there is architectural and historical continuity with the Italian Liguria (Nice became French in 1860 only!), so Italian places are worth a look too if you like this kind of places. And the train to Ventimiglia will take you there quite quickly (Nice-Monaco: 25min, Monaco-Ventimiglia: 25min). Along the sea ...

On place I can recommend for hiking are the mountains behind Vence. It's a 1 1/2 hour ride by bus from Nice downtown. Either you climb the mountain above Vence which is quite high but stunning, or you take the route to other places in the area. Saint-Paul de Vence and Tourette are a bit touristy (specially during the summer) but the places inbetween are ...

The possible train solutions can be found in the Trenitalia site. Currently the cheapest train from Milan to Ventimiglia is the regional train. It takes almost five hours and costs 22.25 euros. It is possible, anyway, to find some good offers for faster trains at a price lower than the one of the regional train. These discounted seats have some ...

I doubt anything changed since the last time I visited, but I'd say there's little you have to worry about. Crossing the border is not even a formality. You can just walk/bus/drive/train in. I'm not familiar with EHIC, but they don't claim to cover you in Monaco: http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/staying-safe/travel-insurance/ehic I ...

I don't know about health insurance, but I was in Monaco a few years ago. There is no border. You just go there. I went walking around and eventually it got a bit boring, so I turned around and walked back the way I came, and saw a "Welcome to Monaco" sign. Apparently I had walked out of Monaco and into France without noticing and without any "Welcome to ...

Regional train tickets are valid on any train of the day when you buy the ticket at the station. You only have to validate it before getting on the train. The price of the ticket does not change over time (I mean booking early does not make it cheaper) and every regional train is the same price. Therefore I would recommend to just buy a round-trip ticket ...

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 ...

Regarding EHIC in Monaco, don't worry too much. Monaco is very small, so if you don't do any high-risk activities, you won't need to have medical help there – France is a few kilometres away with EHIC coverage, and has an open border with Monaco; even in rush conditions you'll be able to get there and go to the Nice or Menton hospitals. Plus, regarding ...

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 ...

If you love trains and countryside, I highly recommend the Train des Pignes from Nice to Digne-les-Bains. This is a touristic train with a beautiful scenery.

You'll want to see the post @Karlson linked to in his comment for all about how to get from Nice to Monaco/Monte Carlo by bus or see sncf for a train connection. In order to travel onwards to Venice you might look at going by train - since all the high speed trains seem to have been abolished on the eastwards leg from Monaco you'll have to go to Ventimiglia ...

Saturday will be just fine, but be prepared for Sunday. Don't need to book a open return. Just mention going to Monaco at the counter. Book a day before or else you will have to get a ticket(which is quick) and queue for the train. The queue moves very slowly as they don't put extra trains for the F1 weekend. Very unlike Silverstone. Trains are packed, so ...
