    Nice Airport - Cote d'Azur

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 28, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Best gateway to the Cote d'Azur for people from afar is the international airport at Nice, calles Nice-Cote d'Azur. Here two architectural beautiful terminals welcome the passengers of various airline companies. It is built on an artificial island within the mediterranean, itself already a work of constructive art.

    Cruising the Beaches

    by Goner Updated Sep 9, 2004

    A small car rental in Nice came with our travel package. We picked it up at the airport and wandered around the streets until we found our hotel. Parking is at a premium as the streets are so narrow, but it was a blast cruising the road along the Riviera. It's a great way to really see the beautiful coastline.

    Short Flight From Paris

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a 1 1/2 hour flight from Paris to Nice. There were wonderful views of the Alps on the flight and more spectacular views of the Riviera before we landed at the Nice Airport.

    The cost of our flight was included with our "France Vacation" package. Their website is:

    Their are reduced internet fares listed on Easyjet that start at 100 Euros.

    Mini-Van Tour to Monaco

    by Goner Updated Sep 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Instead of driving the hazardous winding road from Nice to Monaco we took a day trip on a mini van with a driver who knew the road, a good idea I think. After showing us where Princess Grace lost her life, it seemed even a better idea. There is such spectaular scenery to miss if you're driving. We found a brochure at the hotel, called the tour company and they picked us up at the door. it was a truly international group in the van; a girl from Norway, a couple from Germany and two Australians. A great experience. Try it.

    the view from the bus goes on and on

    I traveled by bus during my trip to the region, when I wasn't on foot. It is cheap and frequent to most areas. Some towns' services stop rather early, but for touring around during the daytime, it can't be beat.

    Nice is the perfect base for seeing the Riviera. Arrive at the Gare Routiere and you will find buses leaving for every destination across the coast and inland. The schedules are readily available and easy to follow.

    The advantage of bus travel is cost and scenic opportunities. Through most areas you are moving slow enough to not only appreciate the sights, but photograph them as well!

    Although there was that time the bus was racing along a two lane stretch and had to stop suddenly to let another bus pass!

    What better way to travel around the Cote D'Azur then by this fabric-covered scooter! We saw this little scoot outside a shop in Nice Old Town and wanted to jump on right away!

    Ride in style while you're there....

    Car is the best!

    I think car is the best way to visit the south of the France. In fact, these zone are well connected by motorways and local roads. In train you can not reach marvellous places like Eze and the Abbaye de Senanque, so I advise to not use this kind of transportation.

    How to get there?

    by Helga67 Written Nov 16, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're flying into Paris, it may be more economical to connect via a smaller airline directly to Nice or Marseille, then rent your car in the south. Or consider a rail-drive pass with one of the larger car-rental companies, which allow a few days' rail travel and a block of car-rental time. By using the train to cover the long distances, then exploring the region in depth by car, you can make the most of both styles of transit.

    It's possible to do Aix-en-Provence by TGV (train with high speed) I'was especially impressed by the fascinating station building. It was built by a French architect whose name is: Jean-Marie Duthilleul

    Easily accessible by car from the Marseilles airport. Definitely drive from spot to spot, but here's another alternative we used.
