The Helicopter and the Virgin Mother

Let's face it, if you are coming to Monte Carlo, you might as well do it in style. Land at Nice airport and hop the helicopter. Once you arrive at the heliport in Fontvieille, they then deliver you to wherever you are staying in the Principality. It's not just a fun way to arrive - why even Damien Hirst's Virgin Mother stands ready to greet you - it's also such an easy way of doing it. It costs 105 one way - 210 euros return - from Nice airport to Monaco - or if you go one way only, then it's 120 euros - cheaper than the taxi I believe! Heli Air Monaco.

Of course, there's another way. Take the airport bus which will cost you only 18 euros.

As for The Virgin Mother, click to see her a little more clearly. She's pretty stunning whether she is to your taste or not. Go on, do click...HERE and HERE.

I'm all for arriving in style. The sad thing is, my pocket book has never caught up with my sensibilities. Shame, really.

I love Helicopters, beautiful view of the mountains in the backdrop! Very inviting!

This reminds me of the Heli pad on top of the Burj al arab in Dubai. Best way to get about.
We use it all the time when we are in residence there. In my dreams of course ;-) LOL

If the airport bus cost 18 euros, does the Heli Air Monaco cost 1800 euros?!

Leif, I really should have included the prices and have now added them to the copy. The cost from Nice airport is 105 one day, 210 return. Or 120 one day if you don't want the return part.

Well, I've never been big on style, but the photo ops from the chopper might persuade me if the weather were good. Otherwise, you'll find me on the bus -:)
