Both stations give easy access to the splendours of Provence's main tourist destinations. The Gare SNCF affords you trips to Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Cannes and St Tropez to the west and east to Monte Carlo, Monaco, Menton and Italy. The regional service takes you to the lower Alps for hillwalking or to visit the enchanting fortified town of Entrevaux or the spa town of Digne. An absolutely wonderful journey as on departing Nice, the 2 carriage train takes you up a steep-climb and thunders along at a good pace through and over some 40 viaducts, tunnels and bridges and you become entranced by the magnificent vista of the Alps ahead. Visit Nice's vineyards for wine tasting from 9e's :take the local train to St Isadore, walk the 'chemin de cremat' to Domaine de Fogolar.
Explore the Azur by Bus: The local bus station, Gare Routiere, is only 10 minutes away and the service runs to Grasse, the perfume capital of Provence and the delightful medieval fortified town of St Paul de Vence. This is a beautiful village (village perche) high on the hills where it appears time stands still and where from the battlements you can overlook the valley down below. The bus journey to St Paul takes about 40 minutes and stops at the local towns on the way but its well worth it when such a stunning location awaits. The restaurant, the Columbe D'Or has an international reputation which attracts the rich and famous. The bus journey is currently only 1 euro per person! and it's also1 euro per person for a trip along the coast to Monaco/Monte Carlo from the same bus station and takes about 1 hour. So it's well worth the journey as the bus hogs the coastal path.
Explore the Azur by Car: There are several national car rental agencies at the rail station (Gare SNCF)offering hire including HERTZ and AVIS. Car parking spaces in Nice are somewhat difficult to come by but with the car hire agents nearby a day trip is a worthwhile excursion. You can take in the village of Gordoun and the dramatic Gorges du Loup or up to the ski-slopes at Chamonix. Thereis no direct access to St Tropez (except a daily sailing in Summer from the port) so for those wishing to visit a car would be the best method. Though be aware that routes in/out of St Tropez are quite congested during the summer peak. The A8 is the main coastal road running from Cannes to Monaco and Italy is only a few minutes away from Gare SNCF. The N202 will take you out of the city and along the Var river to the Upper Provence towns of Entreveaux and Digne-les-Bains
