How to reach Nice:

Nice is the sixth largest city in France. It is located in the South East part of France, on the Mediterranean Coast, close to the Italian border. Nice is located ~200 kms away from Marseille or Genova (Italy) and ~900 kms away from Paris. Nice is very close from Monaco (~30 kms).

Flying is likely the best way to reach Nice. Its international airport, Nice Côte d'Azur, provides direct connections to a large number of European cities and some international ones (see list here).

Nice is not yet connected to the French hight-speed-train network. Train should be mostly consider for people enjoying train riding (which can be scenic in the nice area) and/or with some time. It takes about 6-7hrs from Paris (either from downtown/Paris gare de Lyon or from the Charles-de-Gaulle Airport stations ) and about 2h30 from Marseille central Station.
