Arriving — Monaco has rail, bus, highway—and helicopter—connections from other coastal cities, particularly Nice. There are no border formalities when entering Monaco from France. The 19km (12 miles) drive from Nice takes around 30 minutes and runs along the N7 Moyenne Corniche. The pretty D6098 coast road takes a little longer. Lignes d’Azur (www.lignesdazur.com; tel. 08-10-06-10-06) runs a bus service at 15-minute intervals aboard line no. 100 from Nice to Monte Carlo. One-way bus transit from Nice costs 1.50€. Trains arrive every 30 minutes from Cannes, Nice, Menton, and Antibes (www.oui.sncf; tel. 36-35 [.40€/min]). Monaco’s underground railway station (gare) is on place St. Devote. A system of pedestrian tunnels, escalators, and elevators riddle the Principality, and such an underground walkway links the train station to Monte Carlo. The scheduled chopper service to Nice Airport costs 120€ via Heli Air Monaco (www.heliairmonaco.com; tel. 92-05-00-50). By bus it’s just 22€ (www.niceairportxpress.com; tel. 04-97-00-07-00).
