Nice - Getting there & away, getting around
Nice - Getting there & away
Nice-Côte d'Azur international airport is 6km (3.5mi) west of Nice. Over 40 national and international airlines fly in and out of Nice, and services to Paris are very frequent. Several bus companies link Nice with French and international destinations. If you'd rather travel by rail, there are fast trains running all along the coast and an infrequent TGV (high-speed train) to Paris - you may find it quicker to catch a train to Marseille and change there. Regular ferries sail from Nice to Corsica.
Getting around Nice
A half-hourly bus service runs from the airport to Nice train station, where you can catch another bus to promenade des Anglais or the beach. For other destinations in the city check out the central bus station on square Général Leclerc. If you'd rather drive, there are plenty of car rental companies to choose from. Exploring the centre of town is best done on foot, but having your own wheels can be helpful for discovering the rest of the Côte d'Azur. If you'd rather travel by sea, rent a yacht and live the high life - if only for a day.
