I would take the train... It's much easier. I took it from Monte Carlo to Cannes, but Nice was one of the stops on it. Just make sure that you ask the attendant at the station what time the train leaves because the schedules weren't right and the train left a few minutes earlier than was listed. It cost us 30 euros to got to Cannes for two people round trip, but to Nice it's less than that because its not as far a distance. Be sure to validate your ticket before you board the train. I can try to explain how to get to the train station if you're interested.

Can you tell me exactly how to get from the dock in Cannes to Montecarlo. The cheapest way! The way to the station if you know it, and then, the best way to explore Montecarlo. Do round-trips on railways have the return at a specified hour or can that be flexible within the day? Thank you

Mani8kgm, I can't help you with all your questions, but, in

Monte Carlo, you can pretty much walk everywhere. The palace is up on the hill (the rock) and overlooks the harbor. There is a lot to see up there between the palace, changing of the guard, Princess Grace's final resting place at the Cathedral and the also the Aquarium - not to mention the town itself up there. The casino, hotels and beaches are down below, but not too far to walk if you like to walk. I would definitely take the train though from Cannes. It must be the quickest way to get there.

There is a bus that goes between Nice and Monaco. It is a nice way to travel because you can see more than on the train. The bus you want is the TAM 100 and it goes from Nice to Menton. You can get off at various places in Monaco. See the list of stops here: www.rca.tm.fr/ftp/FR_plan/ligne100.pdf…

have fun!

Magoozsuz, do you know if the shops are open in Menton on Sundays? We are staying at the Marriott Cap d'Ail and there is a bus stop right outside our door. Do you think the bus you refer to stops there? Thank you for your attention and assistance.

Hello, Traveling Gardner

Love your screen name since I love traveling and gardening.

I'm planning on staying at the Marriott in May 2007.

Do you know which bus stop is the closest? I think the 100 bus is the one to take.

Any recommendations or suggestions will be appreciated.

We're planning on going to the Saturday market in San Remo and perhaps taking a mini-bus tour to various towns away from the coast.

Thank you for your compliment. I think my name fits my interests.

Now, for your trip. I answered this earlier tonight; however, I forgot my password and may have lost my first response in all that shuffle. So forgive if the first came through and this is repetitive. We were in Monte Carlo in 2003 and again this last summer. We were there for a week the first time and just 3 days the 2nd trip. On the first trip, we arranged for a mini tour through the Marriott concierge and were picked up at our hotel. We drove north along the coast through all the beautiful towns on our way to Cannes, Grasse and St. Paul de Vence. We stopped at the film festival bldg and the wonderful Carlton Hotel in Cannes and then on to a perfume factory in Grasse which was actually very educational and interesting. Great for gifts as well. Our favorite though was St. Paul with its picturesque, winding streets and little shops. We bought some fabulous gourmet olive oils which our friend, a gourmet chef, was delighted to receive. (He does "shots" of olive oil.) We also spent a day at the Ventimiglio street market which, I think, is the closest street market to Monaco in Italy. It's about a 20 minute train ride. We did not go to San Remo since we spent the first night after Monte Carlo in Santa Margherita in order to visit Portofino.

Another of our cherished trips was our day in Olde Town Nice. It's a good thing to do on a Sunday when most other places are closed. It has a lot of history and is great fun. Great cafes and shops. Be sure to hike to the chateau up above for an incredible view.
