Bus from Monaco to Nice


Recommended Posts

Lifted word for word from a post by "Monacocabbie" in the tripadvisor forum:


"Depending on where the tender drops you, there are 2 bus stops. One is up near the Casino, the other is closer to the port, but as it's the last stop before the bus leaves Monaco, it's often very busy there, and if the bus is full, you won't get on.


For the Casino stop, it depends on where the tender drops you. Once you set foot on land, face out to sea, and you'll need to be on the left of the port. If you're already on the left, reckon on about a 10 to 15 min walk, then continue walking ahead, along the quayside. You'll pass a snack bar called Pattaya, then some construction work, then you go up some steps and follow the path to the road tunnel. Turn left and walk a few yards until you see some steps going underground. Follow these for a few yards and you'll reach a set of lifts that take you to the Casino. Go up the hill from the Casino, through the gardens and at the top, cross the road and turn left. There's a row of shops with a couple of bus stops. That's where both the 100 and the 100X stop.


If you're not already on the left, then you can either follow the route above, or take the road going uphill once you reach the Saint Devote corner where there's a little church. If you take the road going uphill, just follow the main road all the way and you eventually come to the row of shops I mentioned.


If you prefer to go to the second stop, it's probably a shorter walk, and you head for Place d'Armes. When you're at the port, facing the sea, you need to be on the quay facing out to sea. In the centre of this quay there's a swimming pool, and to the right of this, as you're facing the sea, is the Rascasse corner. You need to get up to the road somewhere between these two points. Cross the road and find the pedestrian street leading uphill. There's a tabac on the corner and lots of cafes and shops along it. Walk uphill all the way to the road at the top, turn right and you'll see a road junction. To your right, there's the Monaco Bar, and on the opposite corner there's the Monte Carlo Bar. The bus stop is outside the Monte Carlo Bar.


Actually, I just forgot, there's another stop that's a lot easier, in between the two I mentioned. It's at the Saint Devote corner. Once you get on the quayside, walk as if you were going to the Casino, but don't go along the left of the harbour. Get up to the road and cross to where the little church is. There's a bus stop on the road in front of the little church and to the left of it."


Rick Steves describes the Place d'Armes stop as being located near the Brasserie Monte Carlo and the Place du Casino stop as being to the left of the Barclays bank. The Place d'Armes can be located on a map of Monaco just north of the Palace.

We just got back--my report hasn't gotten to Monaco yet but the Sainte Devote bus stop is very easy to find from where you dock (the tenders were coming to the same dock as our ship). You walk around the marina and you will see signs for saint Devote and also signs for the train station (gare) . The row of shops mentioned is obvious and there is a bus stop there. We took the train because we wanted to get to Nice faster.

We saw the 100 bus coming and it was not full when it stopped there.
