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 ...

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 ...

Cagnes-sur-Mer has a railway station, with frequent trains from Nice (generally every half hour). Trains take about 15 minutes, and you just buy the ticket at the station on departure. Depending on where you are in Nice bus 94 might be useful too. The local bus company has its website here: http://www.lignesdazur.com/ (Press the British flag for English). ...

In general, you can always take a taxi. Taxis are around at the airport as long as airplanes are operating. There is a page in english made by the airport regarding the taxi transfer and the night fares. You can also call a taxi company like this here to pick you up in case there is none at the airport by chance. If you want to go 100% sure that you will get ...

Here's what I ended up doing: I took the train to the Cagnes-sur-mer railway station. I walked about 10 minutes from the train station to the shuttle stop (because we couldn't for the life of us find a cab). Walking directions We took shuttle 44 up to the chateau.

Unfortunately, my flight was very late, so I didn't actually arrive at Nice airport until just before 1am. The first thing to note is that the N100 nightbus is very prompt about leaving, and at 30 seconds past 1am you'll see its rear lights disappearing off into the distance... The bus stop for the N4 nightbus is not well signposted from the airport, and ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
