Transport and Accommodation
Transport connections for the area are superb
The local airport is Nice Cote d'Azur (France's 2nd largest airport after Aeroports de Paris).
There is ample free parking right next to the port and paid secured parking in the port itself.
There is a a direct bus service from the Cote d'Azur Airport (Nice) to Menton (number 110). The local Zest bus picks up at the port itself and regional buses are only 1.50 eur to travel along the whole coast.
The railway station is just across the road (3 mins walk from the port) and the efficient SNCF service takes just 30 minutes from Nice (around 5 eur) and 10 mins from Monaco (around 2.20 eur) located in the next bay.
*** Menton has 2 train stations, ours is Menton Garavan nearest to Italy ***
If you are looking to arrive with panache, an option is to take a helicopter from Cote d'Azur airport to Monaco and complete the transfer to Menton by limousine. Please contact us if you need details about this.
Accommodation is also excellent should you require it with the IBIS budget hotel being just across the road and more than 50 other hotels and airbnb's around the town.
French is the national language but being a major tourist resort, English is widely spoken as is Italian.
