Nice airport to city center transportation

Hello all,

Could you please advise if the bus or train is more convenient to get form the NCE airport to the Nice city center. Also, if possible, please advise the difference in cost and travel time. Also, upon arrival at the NICE city center, is the train station or bus stop closer to the BW at 6 Rue Marachal Joffre.

From previous posts, it looks like a taxi from the airport to the city center runs around 30.00EUR. Is this still pretty accurate? Are they readily available?

Regarding sightseeing -

We only have 3 days full days to tour Nice and the surrounding area.

So far, we have decide on visiting St Paul de Vence, Villefranche, Monaco and Eze Village. Given that we do not usually like commercial areas and prefer enchanting villages or area filled with history and beauty, is there an area or town that I did not mention that should not be missed. I know this is a matter of taste but your thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance to anyone that takes the time to answer.

There's no train stop at the Nice airport; you'd need to take a bus or a taxi. Taxis are readily available.

Towns to visit: old Mougins, Valbonne, Vence, Biot, and Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Try to fit in a visit to the peninsula of St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat--there are stunning views from all sides, as well as the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and its gardens to visit. Skip Monaco if you prefer villages; Monte Carlo is mostly modern and not what I'd call enchanting.

If BW means Best Western, you should get off the 98 bus before it turns off the Promenade des Anglais and walk the 3 blocks back to rue Marechal Joffre. Check out the exact location on Google maps.
