    Depending on where you're coming from, usually a plane would be the best if it's far. If it's a city near by that you are coming from, I'd take the train.
    Walking is always the best mode of transportation for me. If not, the bus takes you everywhere.

    TGV from Paris and major cities
    Try to book a central hotel as u can't count on the buses and the cabs might ruin your budget (ie: port - railway station - 18 Euro, port - place Mesena - 15 Euro) !!! far away more expensive than Paris

    Nice Cote d'Azur Airport. Located 7km (4m) west of the town centre. : The airport has banks, currency exchange facilities and ATMs in both Terminals. Terminal 1 has a full service post office, pharmacy and medical centre, and doctors on call 24 hours a day (by dialling 13 on any courtesy phone). Restaurants, cafeterias and bars are also available in both Terminals, as are gifts shops, newsagents and duty-free shopping.
    The airport has good road links to Nice, Monaco and Italy via the Promenade des Anglais, to Cannes and Antibes on the Autoroute (motorway) A8, RN (national road) 98, or RN 7, and to Digne and Grenoble on RN 202. Buses (tel: 4 93 21 30 83) provide connections of varying frequency to all the main towns on the Riviera and in south-east France including Nice (every 15 minutes), Monaco, Cannes, Toulon (two per day), Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and Avignon. Taxis (tel: 4 93 13 78 78) are readily available to all destinations, located outside both Terminals; motorway tolls may be added to your fare. SNCF national train services run to and from the airport every 30 minutes from Cannes Gare St Laurent du Var and every 45 minutes from Nice (Gare Nice Ville). Helicopter transfers to Cannes and St. Tropez can be arranged at the airport. Car ferries from Nice's central port to various towns in Corsica depart three times a day during the height of the summer season and five times a week during the rest of the year.

    by Krystynn Written Aug 24, 2002

    The best suggestion I can think of is to rent a car in Nice... and collect it from the car rental counter at the Nice International Airport (the 2nd BUSIEST airport in France!). Whilst planning for a short trip to Nice 2 Christmas ago, we enquired on the rental charges for a BMW convertible; we informed Hertz that we wanted to pick up our car at Nice Airport. For a 3 days rental period (with unlimited mileage), we were charged only US$150...which is reeeally cheap, if you ask me.

    Of course, this rate was the discounted rate given to us because I showed them my Singapore Airlines frequent flyer card. Do check with Hertz (or whichever car rental company you prefer) to see which card gives the best discounts. And book it BEFORE you fly off for your vacation. If you were to book it in Nice itself....gee, God bless you! You'd probably have to pay through your nose for it!

    By train or the TGV from Paris.
    Buses are good to use in Nice. Taxi's are expensive. If you rent a car beware that the price of gas is much higher than in North America. Also driving in France takes guts. Brakes seem to be expensive as they are rarely used in lieu of the horn. Rental cars if marked as such, maybe targeted by thieves. There was a car rental agency right next to the train station.

    We hired a car and it was a great thing to do which I suggest to you all. It's wonderful to drive around the French Riviera. If you drive in the motorway, you are entitled to pay a toll.

    By bus or car. Cycling can be dangerous here, because the roads are very busy and steap, because of all the mountains.
