Chers collègues,

Lors de la conférence, le moyen le moins cher et le plus écologique de se déplacer à Nice est à pied, en vélo bleu (vélos de la ville), ou en bus - le premièr étant suffisament simple, je n'entrerai pas dans les détails.

La station vélo bleu n ° 29 est la station la plus proche au lieu de congrès et vous pouvez y prendre et rendre votre vélo. Pour plus de détails sur les frais de location, etc, vous pouvez visiter le site http://www.velobleu.org

Concernant le bus, vous avez le choix entre la ligne 20 ou la ligne 30.
La ligne 20 vous dépose à un arrêt de distance de la Maison du Séminaire, mais il y a plus de bus que la l igne 30.

Pour rejoindre la ligne 20 depuis le centre ville, vous pouvez prendre le tramway jusqu'à l'arrêt "Vauban". Continuez à pied en direction de l'Université de Saint-Jean-d'Angély et aller à l'arrêt de bus "Saint-Jean-d'Angély" sur l'avenue de Roquebillière (le premier croisement auquel vous arriverez). Prenez ensuite le bus jusqu'à l'arrêt "Saint-Aignan-Pilate". Continuez à pied (la mer sera à votre droite) en direction du restaurant "La Réserve". La Maison du Séminaire est juste en face, de l'autre côté de la rue. En fonction de l'endroit où vous séjournez; n'hésitez pas à consulter la carte suivante pour vérifier votre itinéraire :

Pour consulter les horaires de la ligne 20, cliquez ici :
http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/lignes/ligne%2020%20(au%2031%2008%2009).pdf

Vous pouvez prendre la ligne 30 directement à la gare SNCF principale, dans le centre ville (Gare Thiers). Descendez à l'arrêt "La Réserve".
Voici les horaires de cette ligne :
http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/lignes/ligne%2030%20(au%2013%2007%2009).pdf

Enfin, vous avez toujours l'option du taxi en appelant le centre Nice Côte d'Azur Taxi 04 93 13 78 78. Il s'agit d'une société centrale qui gère toutes les réservations de taxis pour Nice.

A très bientôt !

Same as previous post but in English! Oct 8, 2009

During the conference, the cheapest and most environmentally-friendly way of getting around Nice is on foot, by vélo bleu (city bicycles), or by bus. Since the first one is fairly straightforward, I won't go into much detail.

I just want to point out that bicycle Station No. 29 is the closest station to the conference venue and you can pick up or drop off your bicycle here. For more details about rental fees, etc. you can visit the site http://www.velobleu.org

As for the bus, you have two options, either Lines 20 or 30. Line 20 drops you off one stop away from the Maison du Séminaire but runs more often than Line 30.

To get on Line 20 from the center of town, you can take the tramway to the stop "Vauban". Continue on foot towards the University of Saint-Jean-d'Angely and go to the bustop "Saint-Jean-d'Angely" on Ave de Roquebillière (first cross street you come to). You'll take the bus to the stop "Saint-Aignan Pilate". Continue walking (with the sea to your right) towards the restaurant La Réserve. La Maison du Séminaire is right across the street. You can always check on this map to find a better connection with another bus line depending on where you are staying: http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/FR_plan/Nice%20CANCA.pdf and another with downtown details: http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/FR_plan/Nice%20Tram%20(08)%2037%20(2).pdf

And here are the hours for Line 20: http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/lignes/ligne%2020%20(au%2031%2008%2009).pdf

You can get on Line 30 at the main SNCF train station in the center of town (Gare Thiers). You'll get off at the stop "La Réserve. Here are the hours for those of you who like to plan ahead: http://www.lignedazur.com/ftp/lignes/ligne%2030%20(au%2013%2007%2009).pdf

Finally, you can always get a taxi by calling the Central Taxi Riviera Nice 04 93 13 78 78. This is a central reservations company that handles all taxi reservations for Nice.

Gala dinner location Nov 17, 2009

Where is the Musée AAV exactly? Couldn't find it on a map - is it within walking distance from the Maison du séminaire ?

Musée AVV location Nov 23, 2009

After several attempts, I finally found the web site for the Musée AVV:
Musée Museaav, 16 Bis Place Garibaldi Nice 06300
Tél:09 79 02 95 33
Fax: 04 93 56 21 19 E-mail : info@museaav.com
Ouverture du Mercr. au Dim. de 14h
It is not within walking distance from the Maison du Séminaire but I suppose that several guests from that hotel can share a taxi back from the event.

It would be nice to have some hotel suggestions nearby, conveniently located to be able to walk or take a short tram ride to/from the hotel on Friday for the Irish pub and on Saturday for the Gala evening. I tried several times to reach the Nice Tourism Office but they are always too busy to take the calls!
ANY SUGGESTIONS from locals? Thanks in advance.

Catherine, from Aix-en-Provence
