This discussion might help get you started:


The Cote d'Azur has one of the best systems for public transportation that I've seen on any of my travels. Basically, trains run along the coastline, linking the resorts, and buses will take you inland to such places a Eze, the mountain village closest to Nice, and St. Paul de Vence, more in the direction of Cannes. Buses are the least expensive way to travel - most fares are one Euro each - and they also run along the coast. However, trains are usually the faster way to travel as buses make frequent stops and are subject to the sometimes brutal traffic. Trains run frequently so there is no reason to book in advance, but it's a good idea to buy your tickets the evening before you travel as daytime lines can be long. This is especially true in the mornings.

Have a great trip!

I would suggest that you visit/stay in old Nice, the building, shops... are so beautiful, take the bus as Troggs suggested from old nice, there is a place where all buses stop and leave from old Nice to north cities like cannes and the like or go south to Mont Carlo, Menton ......, this is one Euro per person and it does stop a lot, the coast line is amazing and it worth traveling by the bus stopping at those different places.

Combinations which work well:

Cannes in am /lunch then Antibes for afternoon/evening /dinner. Train to Cannes, break your journey on the way back in Antibes.

Bus to Eze village then back on bus to Monaco. Train back to Nice breaking your journey at Villefranche for dinner.

Bus to Vence then to St Paul de Vence.
