From St.Etienne airport to Nice


We are considering to buy a cheap flight ticket to St.Etienne airport, at the end of May.

We want to go directly to Nice (or maybe Marseille) from the airport.

I appreciate if you can recommend a way to arrive to Nice directly from the St.Etienne airport. We prefer train if possible.

You would have to take the shuttle bus to St Etienne station, a train from there to Lyon and change there for a train to Marseille or Nice. I would guess that the cost would outweigh any saving you might make on the flight.

Thank you very much railtraveller65,

You are right, it is also a lot of trouble.

Actually, we can buy a direct flight to Marseille for the same price. Unfortunately, the plane arrives in Marseille at 01:30, this will be a very late time to go to the hotel and we will be tired in the morning to enjoy the city.

St-Etienne option will let me to arrive in the hotel in the evening so we can enjoy another Marseille night. Also I will pay for the accomodation in any case, even I arrive at 02:30.

I guess I will go for the St-Etienne option. What do you think, do you see another option which I can't see at the moment?
