Nice Airport to town? bus? number?

We'll be in Nice at the end of December.

We are staying at the Villa Saint Exupery Beach Hostel ( 6 Rue Sacha Guitry, 06100 Nisa)

Should we take the bus from the airport?

Which station would be closer to our hotel?

what is the number of the bus and the station we need to get off in town?

Thanks for any help.

The website of the local public transport operator is quite helpful for that kind of requests:

But - not without reason - you can only look it up a few weeks ahead

i think the route planner is dire if you don't know the area and bus system as it finds non useful routes, out of comission stairways and paths and suggested bus lines for connections won't accept passengers or allow drop offs

In this case the route planner suggest getting on at a stop which is awkward to find for people that don't know the airport , is only used for half the buses and is a classic stop skipped by drivers if they need to make up time . as well as taking people 15 minutes or so out of the way past les Moulins to the prefecture before heading back to Nice centre

bus 23 from termianl 1 to stop arenas, then change to bus 9 or 10 at that stop revalidating your ticket on the second bus

get off at stop J. Médecin / Pastorelli

1euro50 per person or buy a 10 euro /10 journey ticket at the ticket office in terminal 1 and valaidate as many times as people travelling on first bus and only once when making the connection [regardless or number of people]

alternatively bus 98 to stop albert 1er - 6 euros per person. the walk at the end is about the same
