ps/info I have printed off.You're welcome!
You are right I have the timetable for bus # 82 to take to Nice along with #112 after we are done at Eze. I assumed we could catch either bus to go on to Nice. Is that correct?
I must admit to be puzzled why the various bus schedules to Nice use two different terms (Gare Routiere and Coach Station) for Nice. The Gare Routiere is the main "coach station" and is located a few blocks inland from the old town. This bus station is very easy for tourists since they have a large electric schedule board with all the bus numbers, destinations, times, and parking slot. The buses are also clearly labled and there are plenty of folks around who speak English and can answer any questions. As to the Eze Village, you can catch buses right outside the entrance to either Nice or MC, or you can take the local shuttle bus that runs from Eze Village down to the train station at Eze/Bord sur Mer where you can catch the regional train that can take you to Nice, MC, Antibes, Cannes, etc. HankThanks for all your help!
What are your arrival and departure times in Villefranche, and when do you need to be in Monaco by?
I think the train to Monte Carlo would be faster than the bus, depending on the train schedule ... and getting to the train station in VF is easier than walking to the bus stop.
Coming back from Monte Carlo, Bus #112 to Eze Village, and #83 down to Eze bord de Mer, and #100 from Eze bord de Mer to Villefranche (l'Octroi stop).
Hi Susan,http://www.ter-sncf.com/ There used to be an English version, but I don't think it's available any longer.
Do you know what the website is for trains?
Also do you know where you catch the #112 from Monaco to Eze Village?On this map, it's near #10 (above the casino) ... that's where we got off when we came from Eze to Monte Carlo. http://www.frommers.com/images/desti...ttractions.jpg
do you know where you catch the #112 from Monaco to Eze Village?It is on Rue Des Iris Street between the casino gardens and Blvd Princesse Charlotte. From what I have read it is not a bus station, only a "bench".
It is on Rue Des Iris Street between the casino gardens and Blvd Princesse Charlotte. From what I have read it is not a bus station, only a "bench".Great that you came up with an exact street name ... I don't think anyone has posted it before! Easy to pinpoint on google maps when you have the name of the street: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,0.006598&z=17
Thanks for the Rick Steves' directions. This is like a scavenger hunt, trying to locate all the info you can before the cruise.I agree that this port in particular seems challenging to find info on. I wish I knew as much when we went as I know now, but we managed well with the directions we had and with asking locals when necessary (although that required our limited knowledge of the French language and hand gestures, because we weren't very successful in finding English speaking locals.)
Now I know the bus stop is on the right side across from the bank!
Rick Steves has directions for finding the stop for bus #112 in this link (Scroll down to the paragraph that begins with, "Buses #112 (to Eze-le-Village)": http://books.google.com/books?id=9_W...age&q=&f=false
