Getting around Monaco

The local airport is Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE), which is about a 40-minute drive to Monaco. There is also excellent transportation between Nice and Monaco. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.

AJ says that, if you’re staying downtown, there’s no need to rent a car. The Monaco Bus Company (C.A.M) is helpful to get around when you’re not ready to walk the steps or take the escalators between the various levels of Monaco. There are six bus routes throughout Monaco to get you where you need to go.

Who is AJ Saunders?

It’s easy to trace where AJ’s love of digital started. His friend’s dad showed them how to write HTML code. Learning the basics of how to build a website sparked a love of digital marketing that continues to this day. Over the years, AJ developed my digital marketing skills with a strong focus on SEO, copywriting, and blogging. Even after all of these years, he’s still curious about online marketing, SaaS, and all things digital.

In the last decade, he has launched an eBook publishing company, a global e-commerce shop, and started the current brands in the AJS Digital Group’s portfolio. Also, AJ built countless websites for a range of clients and advised many on how to develop and implement a digital strategy for their business. Outside work, AJ enjoys playing guitar, tennis, and exploring country houses!
