Default Villefranche to Nice or Monaco

im debating right now whether or not to do a shore excursion with RCL or do it ourselves. what kind of transportation is there in Villefranche to get out of Villefranche to either Nice or Monaco?
is there a train or do you have to take a taxi?
are taxis really expensive?

also it says cameras arent allowed in the Grand Casino. do they actually make sure youre not carrying a camera or are you just not allowed to take pictures? i no in Vegas you cant take pictures inside the casinos but you can walk around with a camera since its a little unfair to ask tourists to not have cameras on them ;-)

You can will need to take a cab from tender arrival point to the station, but you can get a train to both. Taxis are mega expensive

Cameras are not allowed in the Grand Casino and minimum bet last time I was there was $50, there are better things to see in the area. Nice alone to walk and tour is stunning

You can also rent a car in Nice or Villefranche, for more information check the Lisbon/Barcelona thread, I suggested something about Monaco there as well.

You can take a train to both cities. I believe you can also walk to the station.

At the Grand Casino, they will check your bags; including large pocketbooks, backpacks and camera's. This facility is a very Grand & oppulent building. There is a room with slot machines, but the currency was the Franc when we were there.

We took a ship's tour to include Monaco and Monte Carlo. The streets are very narrow and traffic was horrific with 5 ships off shore and you need to tender.
Bon Voyage
