What is the best way to get from Nice Airport to Monte Carlo

We are flying to Nice to stay in Monte Carlo in March - I have read the easiest way to get from the airport to Monte Carlo is on the 110 Bus Service which goes from the airport to Monte Carlo and then on to Menton on the Rapides Cote d'Azur line. Does anyone know where this bus will drop off. Is there a central bus station or will it drop off at main hotels - Im just worried we wont know when to get off, any replies appreciated, thanku

Well you are in luck I was doing research on this just today. You need to take the #98 bus from the airport to Gare Routiere bus station. You can get a pass for the day for 4 Euro per person. Then you need to change at Gare Routiere bus station the the TAM #100 bus that goes to Menton with stops in Monaco. Stops in Monte Carlo are Cimietere, Place d'Armes, Stade Nautique (by the port), and Casino (I think that one is obvious). There are a couple after that, but I didn't pay attention.

Hope this helps.

Hello

Here's a map showing the stops of the 110 from the airport to Monaco. There's some 12 or so stops to chose from in Monaco so you will need to ask your hotel which is the closest to try or work it out from a map, the names of the stops often give you a clue to the location eg 'Casino' !

The only warning I have is that you may have to ding the dinger as your stop approaches and some bus drivers go sailing past bus-stops if it looks as though no-one wants to get off so you have to keep your wits about you and watch out for the names of the stops - they will be written on the bus signs, leap up and ding when you go past the one before the one you need if you see what I mean.

Alternatively tell the driver the name of your stop when you get on the bus and sit near the driver so he may remember to help you.

best wishes

Hi

the best way to get to the Monaco is to take the 110 bus line to Monaco.

At Nice Airport, theres a central bus station, the bus to Monaco leaves every hour on the hour at bus booth 2. Right next to the central bus station is the ticket bureau where you can get bus tickets, a one-way trip to Monaco is 14 Euros per person.

Tell the bus driver your hotel, he´ll stop at the appropriate bus stop in Monaco. In your case, it´s directly in front of the Fairmont.

Getting to the central Bus Gare in Nice and switching busses there is a needless hassle, take the direct way (bus 110).

I will be taking the No.100 bus from Nice when we are there on a cruise for the day in June. Can one of you tell me what the best stop is to get off in Monaco for the Tourist Train. Also the map of the bus route from the airport looked handy but has anybody got a similar map that shows the stops going into Monaco and Monte-Carlo. Thanks for any replies that will make my chioce of stop easier

Sorry I meant with the No. 100 bus going onto Monaco. I mistakenly missed this out when I posted above
