by tram from Nice to Monaco

the tram network in 1928

Most electric tram lines in the network around Nice were controlled by the Compagnie des Tramways de Nice et du Littoral (TNL) which in 1930 comprised 144 km of tracks (in standard gauge) and possessed a fleet of 183 powered cars and 96 trailers.

That was the peak year, however, and in January 1930 trams disappeared from Monaco.

Considering that it was easy to get a train the 21 km between the two places as it is today, the competition from the slower, if more fun trams didn't make much sense.
