I have booked a dinner reservation at the Royal Riviera Hotel for Friday 19 July. We plan to travel from Nice on bus 81 to Baie des Fourmis, and then to walk to the Royal Riviera. Our reservation is at 7:30 pm and I'm wondering how we should return to Nice. I know that, typically, taxis need to be pre-booked, which might be difficult not knowing what time we'd be finished dinner; I suppose we could book it to arrive at 10:30 or later and that this would give us ample time to eat. I expect the taxi would be quite costly but, I think I could justify the cost given the time of night. Knowing we have a ride home might make dinner a lot more stress-free. Does anyone know of a reliable taxi service we could pre-book?
The other option, of course, is the train. If my train schedule serves me correctly, west-bound trains stop at Beaulieu-sur-Mer at 9:54, 10:25,11:30 and 11:55 pm. Is it difficult to get from the Royal Riviera to the train station??? Does anyone know the route well enough to give directions? Ideas? Directions? Both are welcome!Edited: 12 April 2013, 12:28
