Don’t let the fact there is no international airport in Monaco hold you back. The nearest airport is in France (Nice - Cote d'Azur Airport), which is roughly 22km (about 14 miles) from Monaco. The airport operates daily flights to most of the world’s largest cities, and PokerStars Travel can arrange a transfer for you from the airport to Monaco. There are also regular Rapides Côte D’Azur buses connecting Monte-Carlo with the airport’s terminals.

You can also fly from Nice to Monaco in only 7 minutes! Helicopters leave every 30 mins and provide a breath-taking flight over the French Riviera. To book your helicopter transfer contact PokerStars Travel, call +34 93 325 6777, or book directly on the MONACAIR website.


The Monaco - Monte-Carlo station is linked to neighbouring France and Italy, and most international trains will stop here, including the 'Ligure' (which links Marseille and Milan), 'train bleu' which operates between Paris and Ventimiglia, as well as the famous high-speed TGV between Nice and Paris also stop here. A TGV train between Paris and Monte-Carlo takes just under seven hours.
