We are staying near Rue Driote and are wondering what's the best way to get to Nice Football Stadium - Allianz Riviera - Stade de Nice?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Quoted from

allianz-riviera.fr/en/…access-transports

- Bus line 95: Departs from the “Hôpital Saint-Roch” bus stop every 10 minutes from the city centre. Arrives at Avenue Mimoun (at the foot of the south stairway). After the event, departs from Avenue Simone Veil. Click here to see where to get line 95

- SNCF coastal railway: For further information please call Lignes d’Azur agents at 08 1006 1006, Mondays to Saturdays from 7 am to 8 pm, or visit www.lignesdazur.com. Click here to see how to get to the stadium from the SNCF coastal railway station

- Chemins de Fer de Provence takes less than 10 minutes from Nice city centre to Saint-Isidore, located a few minutes’ walk from the stadium. Click here to see how to get to the stadium from Chemins de Fer de Provence station

For train times, please visit www.ter-sncf.com and www.trainprovence.com, “Allianz Riviera stadium route” section.

As you will find, this is one of the most stupidly sited stadiums in Europe. I can only assume that bribery was involved to build it in such an inconvenient place.

On match day you can take the VERY crowded bus service. I have taken the scenic railway a couple of times, it's cheap but you are left with a 1km walk to the stadium, not too bad except on the return it is very steep back to the station.

Get the bus from Stop Hotel des Postes, 3e return, takes you straight to the ground.

Runs about 2 hours before Ko regularly.

Yes, there was probably a bribe, but they'll make good by opening a new tram line in 2020.

Altho, given the price of real estate it would be difficult to see a major stadium built closer to the centre of Nice.

FatChris, as tplus says: they are building a tram line that goes directly to the stadium. This tram line was planned long ago, even before the re-elected current mayor. The whole area between the airport and the football stadium is going to be filled with housing, offices and shopping. An, excitingly for many here, an Ikea!
