Air

There are no domestic flights within Monaco.

Bicycle

With its many hills and tunnels, Monaco is not an ideal cycling destination; walking and taking buses are the best two ways to get around.

Boat

The solar-powered Bateau Bus sails back and forth across the harbour between quai Antoine 1er (Monaco Ville) and quai des États-Unis (Monte Carlo). Boats make the four-minute crossing every 20 minutes from 8am to 7.50pm; buy tickets on board (€2) or from machines at the docks (€1.50).

Bus

Monaco’s urban bus system, operated by Compagnie des Autobus de Monaco (CAM; www.cam.mc), has six lines. Tickets cost €1.50 if purchased from machines at bus stops, €2 on board (day ticket €5.50).

Lines 1, 2, 4 and 6 are especially useful for visitors, along with the Bus de Nuit. Key stops are at place d'Armes, Monaco Ville and Monte-Carlo Tourisme.

  • Line 1 links Monaco Ville (Le Rocher) to Monte Carlo and then continues east up bd des Moulins.
  • Line 2 links Monaco Ville (Le Rocher) to Monte Carlo and then loops back to the Jardin Exotique.
  • Line 3 links Fontvieille with Villa Paloma near the Jardin Exotique.
  • Line 4 links the train station with the tourist office, the casino and Plage du Larvotto.
  • Line 5 links the hospital with the tourist office, the casino and Plage du Larvotto.
  • Line 6 links Fontvieille with the tourist office, the casino and Plage du Larvotto.

After 9.20pm the Bus de Nuit (9.30pm to 12.30am) follows one big loop around town; service is extended to 4am on Friday and Saturday.

Car & Motorcycle

Driving is not the best way to get around Monaco; major thoroughfares are crowded, traffic patterns are convoluted and on-street parking is limited. You're generally better off walking or taking public transport. Park at one of the many well-signposted garages around town.
