Flights to Nice

Flights to Nice land at the Nice International Airport. There are direct non-stop flights from New York to Nice that operate year-round. Paris, London and most European capitals also have non-stop flights to Nice.

Trains to Nice

Trains to Nice all stop at the main train station, Nice Ville. A renovation has greatly expanded the comfort and services but it can be uncomfortably crowded in summer.

Check schedules and buy tickets to Nice on thetrainline.

There's also the smaller Gare St Augustine and the Gare Riquier which handle domestic routes. More on Nice train stations.

Buses to Nice

International Buses to Nice are handled by Eurolines but you'll get a better deal and a more comfortable bus using Flixbus. In either case, you'll be dropped off either at Nice Airport or the Gare Routiere Vauban where it's easy to catch a tram to the town center.

The main motorway (autoroute) that runs through the French Riviera is the A8 which extends all the way to Monaco and the Italian border. Try to avoid rush hours if at all possible as traffic can slow down to a crawl, especially near the Nice and Monaco exits.
