Paris - Nice can be done by TGV (Train Grande Vitesse or high speed train). The terminal is in the heart of the town and is surrounded by a few good hotels that offer a good start of your holiday along the Cote d'Azur. Other trains run along the coastline towards Italy (and Monaco) as well as Marseille.

A great way to get around the French Riviera, adn the whole of France for that matter is the train system. Using the local train to get from Antibes or Cannes to Nice is ideal. They run fairly frequently (around every half and hour) and are relativley cheap.
The day I travelled on the train was stinking hot and we ended up falling asleep on the platform as we JUST missed our first train. They aren't all that comfortable on board but they will get you there with relative ease.

Nikaia was already a rather important settlement with harbour in Greek times and now as well, Nice has a port that links to other places and is a homebase for many sailingships. Decades ago also many fishermen could be found in the harbour, but this business has been overwhelmed by tourism. The harbour is filled with sailing yaghts and motor boats. Also, it;s from nice that the ferries to Corsica and Sardegna leave and return.

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.

Having flown from Birmingham to Nice there appears to be 3 routes into town. A taxi to the main railway station will cost about 28.00 euros The main non-stop bus (Number 99) will cost about 3.70 euros and the stopping bus (Number 23) will cost about 0.70 euros per hour (ie you can use the same ticket on other routes for upto the hour)

Security at Nice airport is scarily efficient. Which is a good thing, IMO. They don't have the prejudiced "spot checks" as they do in America - it's equal opportunity searches.
You might end up having your bag searched 2 or 3 times, so don't pack too tightly or you may never get your suitcase closed again.

Catch a ferry from the Nice Port to Corsica, the Lerins Islands or to some of the nearby port towns in Italy and the south of France. Perfect escape to Corsica for a few days or some day trips to places not too far away.

Security is at a max. After the metal detecter or your hand luggage will be checked and expect all boxes, wallets to be opened.
Also don't be surpriced if the tiniest of things will make the metal detector sound.
No one is spared from push chair babies to wheelchair bound persons.
To avoid embarresments, I would suggest females to avoid wearing metal supported bra cups.

It's very easy and cheap to travel around Nice by train. Quite often they go both in Cannes and Monaco direction.
However, if you want to visit St. Tropez, you have to rent a car. No trains go there from Nice!

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.
