Travel

Airport

Nearest airport is Nice-Côte-d'Azur (location on OSM)

Taxi

Taxis are expensive, typical rates are € 51–57 (from airport to Antibes or Sophia Antipolis). The airport publishes this list of typical prices.

Note: taxis don't take credit cards!

Train

The nearest train station is Antibes.

The nearest station to the airport is Nice Saint-Augustin: about 1 km on foot from Terminal 1, or one stop with bus 23. However, it is currently not signposted at the airport at all. (The town of Nice has promised to integrate the train better in the transport around the airport, when the tram line from the airport to the center is ready, in a few years…)

Bus

Airport

Bus 230 only on weekdays (PDF schedule) goes from the airport to Sophia Antipolis via the motorway. It stops right in front of INRIA. (Use stop “Caquot” for hotels Ibis and Mercure; stop “Skema” for hotels Novotel and Oméga). Price: € 1.50

Bus 250 (PDF schedule) goes from the airport to Antibes via the motorway. Price: € 10.

Bus 200 (PDF schedule), cheaper but slower, goes from the airport to Antibes (45 min) and Cannes (75 min) and everywhere in between. It stops on the road in front of the airport, not at the airport bus station Price: € 1.50

Antibes

Buses in and around Antibes are operated by Envibus, owned collectively by the various towns in its area of service. Here is a map of the bus lines in Antibes [PDF]. A single ticket costs € 1.00. You can buy tickets from the driver or at the bus stops indicated as “gare routière” (or “GR.”).

Bus 1 (PDF schedule) goes between Antibes and Sophia-Antipolis. It has stops, among other places, at INRIA and at the bus station next to the Place de Gaulle in Antibes (rue Dugommier).

Bus 12 (PDF schedule) goes between the railway station and Sophia-Antipolis. It has a stop at INRIA. (On the map, it is still called by its old number: 11.)

Bus 100 only on weekdays (PDF schedule) is the express bus between Antibes and Sophia-Antipolis. It stops in Antibes on the Place de Gaulle and on the road above the railway station (called “Vautrin”). The nearest stop to INRIA is “Templiers.”

A small dictionary to help read the schedules:

  • horaires = time schedule
  • lundi au vendredi = Monday to Friday
  • samedi, samedis = Saturday, Saturdays
  • dimanches et jours fériés = Sundays and official holidays
  • toute l'année = all year round
  • période scolaire = school period
  • période de vacances scolaires = school holiday period
  • sauf = except
  • sauf jours fériés = except on official holidays

Rental cars

Rental car companies at the airport have desks at both terminals. The cars themselves are located in front of Terminal 2.

INRIA Campus

There is normally no need to have a visitor's badge if you're only visiting the meeting rooms and the restaurant. Access to all other buildings is restricted.

There is a reception at the entrance gate, where you may want to ask for directions to the right room. However, there is no need to sign in.

Hotels

There are some hotels at walking distance from INRIA (see below). They are convenient if you come here to work. ☺ After the evening rush, the area is quiet and if you're awoken by a sound, it is probably a wild boar under your window.

On the other hand, if you take a hotel in one of the surrounding towns (Antibes, Biot, Valbonne, Mougins, Cannes, etc.), you're sure to have interesting restaurants around you and, especially in Antibes, a number of bars.

Nice is the big town in the area. From the center of Nice to INRIA is about 24 km.

Electricity

Electricity in France is 230 V, 50 Hz. Laptops normally come with a power supply that handles everything from 110 V to 230 V. That may not be the case for other devices.
