Transport from Nice Airport

We are staying 2 nights in Antibes prior to a week in Uzes. We were going to rent a car at the Nice airport, but probably do not need it for the short stay. What would a taxi cost from airport to the city centre, or is there bus shuttle service? It apparently is only 17km distance to the hotel.

thanks

A taxi will be about 60 euros......

These links should be helpful.

250 Express bus:

…aeroport.fr/Passengers/DIRECTIONS-PARKING/G…

...and the airport link with the taxi info datthecoast provided:

…aeroport.fr/Passengers/…Taxis

A train is another option, but IMO, it's a bit awkward to get from the Nice airport to the nearest train station, St. Augustin, and it would not be an option we'd consider when there is an Express bus. A taxi will give you door to door service, and depending upon where you are staying and the number in your party, it may be your best option.

I always take that 250 express bus which is good value at 15 euro for a Duo ticket ( 2 people) or 10 euro for one person. The bus runs from both terminals every 35 minutes up to 8.20 PM and takes 40 minutes. The bus is very luggage friendly and the driver will take you luggage out at the destination.

However if you can be more definite about your ultimate destination in Antibes we may be able to advise if you have a long walk ahead of you from the bus stop which is not particularly well located for some of the town.

As datthecoast says, 60 euro is about right for a taxi - maybe more for late hours which in France is considered as being as early as after 7 PM..

To be honest, in this case I would take the vtaxi. The Jabotte is on the edge of the Cap d'Antibes close to the Salis beach and a very long walk from the 250 bus stop. . You could reach it from Antibes train station on the local bus 14 which stops at Salis beach but this would still necessitate a walk from the 250 airport bus stop. Too much trouble with luggage.......

Incidentally La Jabotte is nicely placed to walk along the very scenic cliff top Ramparts into Antibes' Old Town.
