Public Transportation:

The City of Cagnes-sur-Mer is well serviced with public transportation to and from all major destinations on the coast.

There is a free shuttle bus service from the Central Bus Station of Cagnes-sur-Mer to Haut de Cagnes which leaves every 15 minutes. You will want to get off at the stop next to the Chateau (which is the top of the village). The Grimaldi is around the corner in the middle of the Plaza.


If travelling on the A8 motorway from the direction of Aix-en-Provence, take Exit 47 or Exit 48 if coming from the direction of Italy; then follow the signs to "Centre Ville - Cagnes-sur-Mer", then the brown signs indicating "Haut-de-Cagnes - Bourg médieval". This will take you up the hill. Once you get close to the top follow the signs inducating "Chateau Musee" (these are also in brown). This will lead you through some narrow and winding streets and eventually will lead you to the Chateau. The Grimaldi is located in the Plaza next to the Chateau. There are parking (though limited) spaces available below the Chateau - see below for advice on Parking.

Advice on Parking:

Whilst there are public parking spaces through out the village, these are limited and hard to come by, especially during high season.  The public spaces are concentrated in two parking areas before you reach the Chateau.  If you cannot find parking in these two areas when you arrive with your luggage, continue to drive uphill until you reach the side of the Chateau.  Pull over next to the chain as vehicles are not allowed on the Plaza.  Unload you luggage and drop it off at the hotel – just around the corner.  You will then have to drive back downhill – as the streets are one way.  Then drive back up the hill following the brown signs.  As you approach the top you will see a modern structure called the Planastel (on your left).  This is a secured indoor automatic parking garage.  If you cannot find parking around the village this is your best option.  The overnight rates are 8 euros (from 7 pm to 9 am next day).  There are also daily and hourly rates.
