Nice to Eze Village Bus

HI everyone

We are visiting Nice this summer and hope to go to Eze village by bus. What bus would we take and where exactly would we catch the bus from? We will be visiting the old town of Nice so we'd preferably like to leave from the closest possible station to there. Thanks.

I don't think Monte Carlo is a must. It looks nice and if you are a racing fan, seeing the circuit in person is interesting. That's really about it.

Once you disembark at Eze, be sure to take a picture of the bus schedule so you know when to plan your departure. Buses can be quite sparse so you don't want to be back down at the bus station when the previous bus has just departed.

Its a lot better to take a timetable with you, either printed out or stored on a phone or whatever mobile device just in case the timetable is missing, out of date or stained/rippled by water

clairedy,

Almost everyone heads for bus stop Octroi at the main crossroads in Villefranche and if there is a ship or two in the bay there could be 50 or more people at the stop. It is well worth while walkingthe 200 yards or so in the Monaco direction to the previous stop where you will probably be on your own and drivers almost always stop even if the bus is technically full. You may then have the pleasure of travelling at speed past the despairing mob at Octroi. I would say you have planned almost the perfect day.

We went to Eze yesterday and the buses are quite infrequent. The 82 and the 112 are the ones to take and are about an hour apart. Both will take you to Eze village.

Visited Eze last weekend. Buses are infrequent with limited seats and there is a gap of about an hour and a half around lunch time. Joined the queue for the 82 bus about 20 minutes ahead of scheduled time to make sure we could get on and have seats going downhill back to Nice. To our horror and disbelief, loads of mainland Chinese tourists blatantly tried to queue jump. Some young couples pretended to "study" the map and the timetable and hang around near the front of the queue, others tried to send children to squeeze past the queue on the sidewalk (the the parents would then follow pretending to be chasing them). I stopped one of them and pointed to the end of the queue and was met with abuses! So be warned and be prepared to deal with these uncivilised queue jumpers!

Those Chinese interlopers will make good competitors for the local French queue jumpers!

The way to combat this,as elderly French ladies do, is to arm yourself with one of those wheeled shopping trolleys. A swift blow to the ankles will soon put manners on any queue jumper.
