Ticket prices

To Nice a ticket in second class will cost you 65-100 euro depending on the flight. However, if you choose your ticket carefully, and look carefully at all possible ticket prices for the day when you plan to go on a trip, you can save a lot and buy a ticket for 85 euros in first class. Although, if you ask me, there is not much difference between classes, and the trip will not be long, so it’s quite safe to buy a ticket in second class and not to worry about comfort.

You can buy tickets to Nice from the ticket office of the station PARIS GARE LYON or on the website of the French railroads.

From Paris to Nice by bus

If you, for whatever reason, are not satisfied with a train ride, then a bus ride is all the more unsatisfying. There are no direct flights, and even my favorite bus company is not able to help. You can, of course, find a flight with three transfers, but it is absolutely unnecessary. Well first of all in terms of time, such a trip will take a day. And secondly you will be very tired, get to your hotel with a face expression “Angry Ket” and go to sleep for a day, so go by bus do not advise!

At the top of the page you can see that there are a huge number of flights on this direction, you can leave at any time, so I will not dwell on this point. Flight time is an hour and a half. There are two carriers of this direction low-coster Easy Jet and the traditional airline Air France. Planes Air France and Easy Jet take off from airports Orly and Charles de Gaulle, and arrive at Nice Côte d’Azur airport.

Ticket prices

Easy Jet offers very low cost flights for its passengers, so you can get from Paris to Nice by paying only 40-60 euros for a ticket in second class. Prices for flights with Air France are a little higher and start from 70 euros, but most likely you’ll have to buy a ticket, for the cost, somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 euros. Personally, I do not see the point of overpaying. Well, maybe Easy Jet’s cabin is a little less comfortable than Air France’s, but you have an hour and a half flight, so you won’t feel any discomfort.
