For public transport best take the express bus 250 which runs direct to Antibes every 35 minutes up to 20.20 hrs from outside both terminals 1 and 2 . Fare is 8,50 euro and driver will put your bags in luggage compartemnet and take out on arrival. Stop in Antibes is Vautrin across the street from station. Taxi will be 50 -60 euro and obviously drop you where you want. May be additions for luggage and late evening .

There is a public bus across the street from Airport and for just 1.50Euro per person you could reach Antibes or Juan les Pins.The name of the Bus stop is aéroport/Promenade. It might take around 45-50 min. The bus #200 NICE -CANNES.

bus 200 costs 1 euro per person but you may be charged excess luggage fees if you are traveling with lots of luggage or larger case

One bag free per ticket holder of dimension =55 cm x 45 cm x 65 cm or less.

€ 1 per bag excess. for extra bag

€ 5 for an oversized bag (L+l+h > 165 cm).

Cross the road using the underpass close to terminal 1 and make sure you signal in plenty of time for the bus to stop

bus 200 can get bogged down in traffic

Train from Nice st Augustin station is also an option -it cosst 3.40 €/person take free shuttle to stop after terminal 1 and train station is under 10 mins walk . or take bus 23 from terminal 1 costs 1 euro

I always take the 23 bus to the Nice St Augustin stop for 1 euro and then take the short walk to the train station. When you buy your ticket you need to cross the line (via the underground tunnel) to get the next train going to Antibes.

Selkie mentioned on another post that you can actually buy your train ticket from the bus station ticket office at the airport. This is useful to know as the train station ticket office closes at lunchtime and early in the evening and the ticket machine doesnt take notes.

I havnt used the 200 bus in a very long time - the main advantage ( among several disadvantages) is that it stops in the centre of Antibes as opposed to the train or the 250 express bus.

Hi Ed - The train tickets can be bought at terminal 1 bus ticket office - local TER trains only but including pass isabelle famille and pass isabelle and also including reductions for various card holders eg carte ZOU! 50/75, carte 12/25

the airport now has a nifty leaflet on the subject - see here
