just returned from Nice. Walk out the terminal door, the bus pulls in right there. Take bus 99 to the Nice bus station and then bus 100 to villefranche. 100 leaves from the same parking spot that 99 drops you. When you get to Villefranche you get off a bit above the town and have to walk your luggage down to the water, but it is the same story for the train station. There are a ton of steps. We came by bus and left by train. We found the trains to be a bit unreliable. Depends on how much luggage you have.

Hi there

It seems very expensive to get a taxi from Nice to Villefranche!

When we arrive at terminal 2 at Nice airport - do we need to get the free shuttle bus to terminal 1 and then just the N100 to Monaco and Menton, which we assume will stop just around the corner before you get to Villefranche which is where we need to get off?

Can't find any times online for the buses to and from Nice airport either.

Any help much appreciated.

At Terminal 2 get bus 98 to Nice bus station, every 20 mins, and then bus 100 or 81 to Villefranche. The four euro ticket you buy from the driver at the airport is a one day pass which allows you to continue to Villefranche.

Last bus from Nice is 8.00pm so if your flight arrives much after 7.00pm you have two choices. Get the free bus which runs between the terminals and get off at stop Arenas, the first one after T1, walk to Nice St Augustin station, about ten minutes, and catch the train. OR bus 99 to Nice Ville station and catch the same train. Villefranche is three stops from St Augustine or two from Nice Ville.

How to get to Nice St Augustin station from the Airport here -

…aeroport.fr/acces_stationnement_en/trains/t…

Also The Route 200 ( slow bus to Cannes ) also goes to Antibes transit time around 1 hour. We complain a lot about it on this forum - about how overcrowded it is - but things should be easing down a bit now.

NudeMan,

Provided you are happy to walk to Nice St Augustin Station the train, when it arrives, takes only twelve minutes or so to Villefranche. Otherwise it is 60/70 euros by taxi.
