Travel by train – very relaxing!

The Eurostar train service, in conjunction with SNCF, offers an alternative to flying. Travel from  London St. Pancras station changing at Lille or at Paris for the onward journey to Nice. If changing at Paris, a short Metro journey between stations is required. Fares can be reasonable if booked early. The journey time from London is approximately 9 to 11 hours depending on the route taken. A break of journey for one night is sometimes allowed if, for example, you want to spend a night in Paris.

Getting to the apartment

Follow the new signs to catch a tram, bus or find a taxi!

The 98 bus leaves the airport from outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 approximately every 20 mins. It takes the sea-front Promenade des Anglais and travels directly to the city centre via Place Massena terminating near the Library & Gallery of Modern Art Complex. From here you can transfer to the 81 or 30 bus service which passes the apartment. Alight at the stop ‘Park Louisa’ which is the second stop after passing the port. Cross the road and walk up the slope and then the driveway into the car park at the top of the hill. The 2019 fare from the airport to the city is  €6 per person but the ticket is valid for the day and can also be used on the 81 or 30 bus service to the apartment.

July 2019 The new ‘Tram Line 2’ now links both terminals at Nice Airport with the city centre. At present it terminates at the new underground station in  Avenue Jean Médecin below the shopping centre. Later this year the extension to the port will be completed and the terminus is then just a short walk to The Panoramic. The new ‘Tram Line 2’ trams are red whilst the original ‘Tram Line 1’ trams are silver/grey. The fare from the Airport Terminals to the city centre is €1.50 (or €1 if you buy a 10 journey ticket).

The new trams leave from the main entrance to Terminal 1 & Terminal 2 at Nice Airport and run every few minutes!

A taxi from the airport to the city centre or the apartment is approximately €25 – €35. They are readily available at both terminals. The cost may be higher late in the evening.

If you use a taxi to or from the airport please make sure the driver or booking clerk is aware you want the apartment block, ‘Le Panoramic’, located at 2, Avenue Urbain Bosio, 06300, Nice as there is also a hotel called ‘Le Panoramic’ some way away on the Grand Corniche highway. (Yes – it has happened!).

PLEASE NOTE CHECK IN IS BETWEEN 2pm and 8pm
