There are two first league football clubs in the area :

  • l'OGC Nice
    stadium Allianz Riviera, Nort East of Nice (highway exit St Isidore)
  • l'AS Monaco
    stadium Louis II in Monaco

If you don't know the french championship, let say that Monaco is stronger than Nice and that it takes part in 2015 in the european champions' league.

If you come from the wild west we remind you that this is soccer.

Public transportation

Accommodation

Use this link to find a room near the stadium.
Beware. In the hotels selection you'll find rooms in St Laurent du Var. They may be very close from the stadium as the crows fly. But St Laurent is on the opposite side of the Var River and you may have to detour a lot to go to the stadium. The road bridges are located on the river mouth. The bridge in front of the stadium is the freeway's one and you can't go to St Laurent using it. Pay attention to the maps and choose accordingly.

If you want to see a match in Monaco, taking into account the prices of the hotels in this country, you may save money by staying in Nice near the station and going to Monaco by train (or by bus, which is longer). For the hotels in Monaco click here.
