By air: Don’t let the fact there’s no international airport in Monaco hold you back. The nearest airport is in Nice (Cote d'Azur Airport), which is roughly 22km (14 miles) from Monaco. The airport operates daily flights to most of the world’s largest cities. Rapides Côte D’Azur buses connect Monte-Carlo with the airport’s terminals.

You can also fly from Nice to Monaco in 7 minutes. Helicopters (Monacair) leave every 30 mins and provide a breathtaking view of the French Riviera.

By train:  The Monaco-Monte-Carlo station is linked to neighbouring France and Italy. Most international trains will stop here, including the 'Ligure' which links Marseille and Milan, 'train bleu' which operates between Paris and Ventimiglia, and the high-speed TGV between Nice and Paris. A TGV train between Paris and Monte-Carlo takes just under 7 hours.

You can buy-in onsite at the venue using the following options.
