depend if you arrive Terminal 1 or Terminal 2

Terminal 1 is the nearest

you have a free shuttle between both terminal but not often at midnight

Terminal 1 to train station = about 15/25 min by walk

Hi, thank you so much for you kind and so quick reply!

according to this, i think it's better to stay at Nice for that one night.

if so, can you kindly recommend me a nice reasonable- priced hotel near the St Augustine train station, so next early morning it would be just few minutes to go?

thank you in advance !

Nice Aerport site will give you some idea of hotels within range served by shuttle.

…aeroport.fr/acces_stationnement/…hotels.asp

Just to clarify for others - you will not get that 00.30 train to Juan les Pins or anywhere else before June 27th- except on Saturday morning or Sunday morning. It does not run all week until June 27th. The last everyday train from Nice St Augustin is 22.45 at the moment.

In any event our experts here would not advise this route late at night. - you must walk by a deserted business park from the Airport and the St Augustin station is unattended at that hour.

You can also get a Night Bus on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights only at 23.30 ( and later) from Terminal 1 to Antibes, Juan les Pins and Cannes .

I second that note of caution - the very late trains are not sufficiently high on personal security for my comfort. The stations are open but not staffed, the carriages can be empty, except occasionally gangs of youth from the suburban estates that ride late at night without tickets knowing there is no sign of authority anywhere. That was my experience a few years back admittedly but I prefer not to repeat it.

(By way of reassurance there are I am sure many exceptions, like the last train from Cannes to Nice just after midnight, which for that same reason is generally busy with party people and concert goers heading home. Used it many times quite happily)
