Nice to Fragonard Perfumery in Grasse

How is the easiest way to get Fragonard in Grasse from Nice? by train or bus ? Do we need to take another connecting bus once we reach Grasse to head to Fragonard?

Thanks in advance

You can go by train, then a shuttle that takes you into central Grasse. The Fragonard perfumery is right next to the main square, with its rose garden, atop the underground parking lot. Just down the street is the Fragonard gift shop.

You can also go by bus.

Bus [number 500] is considerably cheaper but if you take the train between 1st june and 30th September you can get a pass Isabelle [day rover ticket] for 12 euros which allows you to hop off and on trains

you could then visit the perfume botanic garden [find of a mini farm of perfume plants] associated with the museum of perfume [- get off at mouans sartoux] or cannes or antibes etc

I meant to add that the excellent International Museum of Perfume in Grasse is off the street just above the main square. Opened just two years (I think) back, it includes a scent garden, displays of old copper vats and other equipment for making perfume, exquisite perfume bottles from the days of ancient Egypt to the present, and a dandy little gift shop.

Mouans-Sartoux is a nice small town mostly off the tourist path. There's a ch&ateau to visit as well as a modern-art museum. Les Terrasses is good for lunch.

Word to the wise. We took a tour of the Fragonard Perfumerie last week. We arrived at 1:45--fifteen minutes before they ended their lunch. The timing could not have been better. At exactly 2PM, we, and another couple had our own private tour. Lo and behold, when we left, slightly before 3PM, tour buses loaded--loaded with people were coming in and there was a line to get into the perfumerie. So...my sage advise is get there early.

You will have a wonderful time. The prices are very good on the products!

YOu will not be dissappointed!

You just take the train from Nice to Grasse, then a shuttle or taxi to the central square. The Fragonard building is across the street from the underground parking lot.

How much shuttle should cost? Any other places of interest in Grasse other than this perfumery?

A funicular railway from the station to the old town of Grasse is planned for the future at which time the funix bus will be withdrawn
