Flights to Nice

Flights to Nice land at the Nice International Airport.

Trains to Nice

Trains to Nice all stop at the main train station, the Gare de Ville. It's recently been renovated (with more to come) but still becomes uncomfortably crowded in summer.

There's also the even smaller Gare St Augustine and the Gare Riquier but not all trains stop there. If possible, choose to take a train to Nice rather than a bus as the trains are more frequent.

Buses to Nice

International Buses to Nice are handled by Eurolines and disembark near the airport.

Domestic buses to Nice are handled by a variety of companies. As a rule, buses are slower but much less expensive than trains. See more on French Riviera buses.

Driving to Nice

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.
