Hi Bill, I can comment on bus service on the French Riviera.
Our experience was that it is frequent and inexpensive. For
example, we took a bus from Villefranche to Monte Carlo and,
as I recall, paid less than $2.00 CA. There are bus stops
along the Riviera in each town so you can easily explore the
coast as you wish or you can head inland to St. Paul de
Vence, a lovely village.
There is a regular shuttle bus service from the airport to Nice as well. Here is a site that is very useful and has photos to show you exactly how to find the bus stop at the airport.
The rail line (the Nice-Monaco-Menton-Ventimiglia line) runs along the coast. Nice has three train stations.
If you have the chance, don't miss the flower market in Nice. It's spectacular. Lucy, Toronto
