Getring to Monaco from Nice


We wanted to do a day trip to Monaco from Nice. Originally we were thinking of taking the train. However someone mentioned it would be nicer view to get there via boat excursion. Any opinions? Thank you

It's an easy 20 minute trip on the train.

I imagine the person who advised you was on a private charter, wildly expensive. There is no boat service or regular excursions.

The views from the train are lovely.

You can actually go by boat from Nice to Monaco using the Trans Cote dAzur line. This is really intended as a service trip to pick up people in Monaco for a cruise to the island of Ste Marguerite or St Tropez and if you don't go back immediately without disembarking in Monaco you have to wait 7 hours for the boat to return again. Only 3 days a week in September and finishes September 30th. It is an expensive way of getting to Monaco at around 40 euro. Compare to the train ... 7.80 euro round trip ..or bus no.100....just 3 euro round trip.

For a more economical and very scenic cruise the trip over to the island of Ste Marguerite from Cannes is worthwhile. Even better to the monk's island of St Honorat, a complete contrast to the coast. These boats run a regular service several times a day all year.
