As one who lives in France I can't be precise about airport transfer travel but if you get the 98 from the airport to the bus station in Nice (4 euros per person and about 10-15 mins) you can then transfer to the 100 which will take you into Monaco for the extortionate price of 1 euro! The views from the bus are wonderful if you can get a sit on the right hand side of the driver.

If you post this on the Nice forum you will get a much better response.

There's a direct bus number 110 from the airport that costs 16 euros single. It takes about 40 mins and will drop you at your hotel if you tell the driver where you're staying. The direct 98 bus to Nice costs 4 euros, then you'd have to change onto the 100 at the bus station which will then cost 1 euro. Total journey time for this would be about 2 hours, and it won't drop you at your hotel. Even slower and cheaper would be the 23 local Nice bus at 1 euro, followed by the bus/train to Monaco, but now you're pushing the time to about 3 hours.

My advice is to get the 110.

9ish in the evening or morning - makes a big difference. The last direct bus to Monaco leaves T1 at 21.15, T2 5 mins later. Unless you arrive on Thur/Fri/Sat, when there's a night bus. But if you just miss the bus, you'll be waiting around for at least an hour for the next. So, 9ish at night, take a taxi. If 9ish in the morning, no problem. Buses leave T1 on the hour and T2 5 mins later. But again, if you just miss one, you'll have to wait an hour. So if time is important, taxi or helicopter.
