French Riviera How To Get Here And How To Get Around, France

The main cities in the Côte d'Azur are easily reachable by train or bus.

The Ligne Azur is a pass for free access to the Ligne d’Azur urban network of Nice between the city center and the airport, and the resorts of Cap d’Ail, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Eze, Saint-Laurent-du-Var, Cagnes-sur-Mer and Vence.

The Ticket Azur, instead, is a reduced-price card for different destinations, with more connections through the local transportation service (bus or tram), with a single price of €1 which can be paid onboard during the first leg of the trip, with issuance of the facturette Correspondance Azur.

By plane
The European Toulon-Hyères (TLN) airport is used a lot by low-cost companies, and is a convenient way to access the Cote d'Azur, with daily connections to Nice by train and Hyères by bus.
The Nice Côte d'Azur airport, 7 km from Nice and 33 km from Monaco, with direct flights to destinations around the world, is the second busiest airport in France. The Nice St.-Augustin train station, reachable from the airport by shuttle bus offers connections with the main towns in the Côte d'Azur with the TER (Express Regional Train) and SNCF lines.

By boat
The numerous tourist ports in the Cote d'Azur, such as those in Cannes, Golfe-Juan, Menton, Monaco, Nice and Villefranche-sur-Mer are the Mediterranean ports of major cruise lines and provide easy access to the city center.

By car
The Cote d'Azur is well connected with the European highway system. Highway A7, a continuation of the A6 - also known as the Autoroute du Soleil - connects Lyon with Marseille.
From Italy, you can get to the Cote d'Azur on the Genoa-Ventimiglia highway 10 which, in this territory, becomes the A8 and passes all the cities on the coast.

By train
As an alternative to the buses, the trains connect the major cities of the Cote d'Azur with all the French regions and major European destinations. The TGV (high speed) trains stop at Cannes, Antibes and Nice.
