Heliport - the Helipad


The Heliport is in Fontvieille, just near to the Circus Big Top, the beautiful Princess Grace Memorial Garden and the Columbus Hotel. It's a 7 minute ride from Nice airport and the cost of the flight includes a private ride to your hotel or home.

Thank you for showing the helipad. This brings back memories.

When we stayed next to Fontveille we enjoyed watching the helicopters arriving and leaving may times during the day, shuttling in people obviously wealthy enough not to be bothered with a drive along the Riviera to Monaco.

If there were no helicopters flying in and out, there was the activity on the yachts in the harbor below our hotel to add some activity to the otherwise idyllic view of the Mediterranean sea and sky.

What a fabulous location for a helipad! Must look like you're landing on the water if you were in the helicopter.

I am not going to ask how much that short ride costs! ;D

I've taken several rides - "virtual," that is.....

There are several videos on the internet and it sure seemed an adventure to fly into Monaco! What a way to make an entrance, huh?

I believe a one way trip from Nice is about 115 euros. The company also offers excursions.

I remember that Helipad when I visited. Always wondering who was on board. Racecar drivers, movie stars, or royalty.

It could pencil out if you plan to be on foot and don't need a rental car. Nice composition.

It isn't all that expensive & the majority of people using the service are just regular people - If you can afford to live in Monaco [1 bed apt = $1M+] then a helicopter transfer isn't all that expensive & not much more than using a local car service company ... It's obviously much quicker, especially in summer when traffic between Monaco & Nice is hell ... of course you can also use the service to loads of other places ... quick dash to Cannes, St Tropez, Portofino, Milan etc...
