By Plane

Nice Airport is erg dichtbij (minder milieuvriendelijk maar wel erg fijn, ook voor bv een lang weekend). Er gaan dagelijkse vluchten en het is zeer eenvoudig een auto te huren. Dolceacqua ligt op 50 km rijden vanf Nice (A8) Daarnaast gaan er vanaf Nice Airport elk kwartier bussen naar het centraal station vanwaar het eenvoudig is om de trein naar Ventimiglia te pakken, deze gaan elk half uur. Voor het laatste stukje kunt U met de bus maar wij adviseren de taxi.
