How do I book a flight?

Looking to maximize your dollar when flying? The average cost of a flight to Nice runs around $1,700, depending on the time of day and year you’re arriving. To find cheap flights to Nice, try arriving in the winter off-season, or find a flight that has more than one stop along the way.

What’s the best way to get to and from the airport? 

Looking for the fastest way to get into town? Nice's airport offers buses into the city every 30 minutes. An express line costs 6 euros (around $6.75) while transport passes for one day, seven days, or 10 voyages will run you anywhere from 5 to 10 euros or around $5.60 to $11.20. You can also get coach service from the airport to Monaco or Cannes.
