How to Get There Traveling to Nice, France, is quite convenient. The Nice Airport, officially known as Côte d’Azur Airport, is the main gateway to Nice and the French Riviera or regionally known as the Côte d’Azur in France and the Principality of Monaco. The airport is just a short distance from the city itself- 4 miles southwest of the town. Ground transportation is easy to access, and helicopter service is available to nearby Monaco. The airport handled over 18 million travellers in 2018. The Nice Train Station (Gare de Nice-Ville) is another option to access the Cote d’ Azur. Train service is quite plentifully from many French cities. The station is quite near the town centre. It was initially built away from the city centre; however, the modern city has populated around the station, making it part of the town centre. The station building can be found in its original condition. Richly decorated balconies and a grand clock are worth taking note of while your in this impressive train station.
