Subject: Re: looking for a hotel in Nice!
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
