By Train:
General: There is no train station at the airport, but SNCF train services run to nearby Nice - St Augustin, which is less than 1 or km from the airport, but curiously with no bus link. Either walk or take a taxi. Alternatively, use Bus #99 above to the main train station and then take a train from there.
Traveller's Notes: Notes from A Traveller July 2008: While the walk from this station to the airport is said to be 1 km, it is much more, especially to Terminal 2, certainly not for the faint hearted and we needed to ask the few locals we found for directions. I'd suggest stating on your site only to attempt to walk if the route is known. Notes from A Traveller March 2009: The walk between the airport and the railway station, although it is about 1km as the crow flies, it is probably about 1 mile to walk. However, the airport and the railway station are not signposted from each other for pedestrians. It is very easy to get lost, particularly as there is a lot of new development which may not appear on your map, and you may end up walking an unnecessarily long route. There is a map here which also shows the walking route, which will help you to avoid the above problems. Note particularly, Do NOT set off eastwards towards Nice along the Promenade des Anglais when going towards the railway station. When going towards the airport from the station, traffic signs to the airport start by leading you along the correct route, but then indicate a circuitous route for traffic - you must turn left down the avenue Lindbegh as shown on the map at the weblink. The big advantage of using the St Augustin railway station is that the bus fare to the airport is 1€. I suspect that your travellers of July 2008 actually got lost and followed an unneccesarily long route. I have to say that I got lost here some months ago.
Destinations & Times: Trains run to Nice city centre (13 mins), Monte Carlo/Monaco (35 mins), Cannes (40 mins), Antibes (25 mins), Menton (50 mins) and more. In general, trains run every 20-30 mins 0515-0042. Cost: To Nice city centre €1.40. For train timetables see www.tersncf.com.
