getting to Nice airport for a 8:30 am flight

Hi,

Our flight home will leave Nice in the morning, what is the best way to get to the airport from Villefranche? I know we can take a taxi for about 70 euro. I guess the other option is to stay near the airport the last night, but that will take away from our last day. Are there any other options I'm not thinking of? This will be the first week of June on a Wednesday. Thanks

I'm sorry pernickety.....I wasn't paying attention to your departure time. My Bad... The bus to the airport doesn't start running until 7:00...so it won't work. I think you are stuck with a taxi...

Go for the train before the one you really need. That way if one is cancelled or delayed you will still get your flight.

Take the taxi. The airport is really not that far and who needs to struggle with bags, train platforms, ticketing etc. besides, it is alovely drive. I remember being very surprised at just how close VFSM is to the airport and how relatively little time it took to get to the apartment we were staying in.

Thanks everyone, we have decided to take a taxi. I'm sure it will be worth the extra cost early in the morning. My husband knows what I'm like for early flights, and said this is the only way to make this work. How early should we be at the airport in Nice, about 2 hours before? When we flew out of Istanbul we needed to get there 3 hours before, but I don't think we need that here.

No, I am planning for our visit first week of June. I may be asking too many questions, but I like to be very organised.
