Getting there & away
Buses to France leave from various stops around the city; the tourist office has schedules and maps.
Some 25 official pay car parks are scattered around the principality. One of the most convenient is the casino parking from where you exit directly to the door of the tourist office. The first hour is free, the second costs €2.40, and every hour after that is €0.60.
If you’re driving (not really necessary in this compact little country), note you can’t take your car into Monaco Ville unless you have either a Monaco or a 06 (Alpes-Maritimes) licence plate.
Trains to and from Monaco’s train station (av Prince Pierre) are run by the French SNCF.
A train trip along the coast offers mesmerising views of the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains. There are frequent trains to Nice (€3.10, 25 minutes), and east to Menton (€1.70, 10 minutes), and the first town across the border in Italy, Ventimiglia (Vintimille in French; €3.10, 25 minutes).
