Air France Paris to Cannes

Am I correct there is no nonstop from CDG or Orly to Cannes?

But AirFrance CDG or Orly stops at Nice. Correct?

Fare from CDG to Nice RT for 2
shows as $1583 whereas from Orly to Nice shows as $496.

So, one must take the train or bus from Nice airport to Cannes. Is all this worth a 2 night stay?

Does it make sense to fly or to take a train from Paris to...Nice??

Any help unravelling this?

The flight from CDG or Orly to Nice takes about 2 hours; leaving from Orly is much to be preferred. Cannes does not have an airport of its own, but from the Nice airport you can catch a shuttle to Cannes. But why not just stay in Nice?

As for the air fares, $1583 is WAY out of line. The fare should be roughly the same from Orly or CDG.
The AF site is not the friendliest, but if you persevere you should be able to find the lowest fare for the specific date on which you'll be travelling.

Thank you. By shuttle do you mean a bus shuttle similar to the AirFrance shuttle at CGC to downtown Paris? Sounds good. We love Cannes and may stay a bit longer as you suggest. We plan to stay in Paris for 10 days. Since I already plan on departure from USA, I may go to Nice first for 3 days then continue on to Paris and come to USA From Paris. Sounds like USA to Paris to Nice to Paris to USA.

Compare air fares on Kayak.com or Travelocity.com.

Take the TGV and enjoy the views of the French countryside.

The cheapest way to fly from Paris to Nice is on a budget airline. easyJet flies to Nice from both CDG and Orly. Fares can be as low as 38.99€.

The coastal bus from the Nice airport to Cannes takes 90 minutes and costs 1.00€. The express bus on the motorway takes 50 minutes and costs 14.20€.

Or you can take a train from Paris to Nice, either during the day or overnight. Advance booking at www.voyages-sncf.com can get you discount fares.

Oops! I should have said that you can take a train from Paris to Cannes, either during the day or overnight.
