Getting around the French Riviera

Travelling between Riviera towns is easy as the area boasts an excellent transport system. Local trains run regularly and strikes aside, offer a very good service. Trains run almost hourly between Cannes, Nice and Monaco running all the way to Ventimiglia on the Italian border.

Inter-city buses link Riviera towns for a mere 1.50 Euros and run approximately every 20 minutes, though the low price tag means these buses can get very busy with many passengers having to stand. The train generally offers a quicker and more comfortable journey.
