About Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France

Set in the heart of one of the world's most beautiful bays, Villefranche-sur-Mer sits on the steps of a natural amphitheatre - the terraced hills of the Riviera - gazing out over the sea. The plentiful sunshine of the Cote d'Azur, reflected in the enclosed bay, has given Villefranche-sur-Mer a warmth and climate all of its own and its famous rich, exotic vegetation.

Take time to see Old Nice, Nice, and Monte Carlo. They are all so beautiful and we loved the interaction with the French people. They were very kind and eager to help.

Our favourite port - very pretty. Get on the train and visit Nice or Monaco. it's easy and cheaper to do your own thing. Don't forget to explore the back streets of Villefranches, it's really beautiful.

My favourite port of all.. beautiful views all around the bay. such a pretty place . I love the tender boat style docking.. and easy to get to Monaco, nice or Cannes, or pretty enough to stay in villfranche


Fantastic port. Absolutely beautiful place. We walked to the train station (about 10 mins) got a return ticket to Monaco/Monte Carlo, it was €6.20 return each, trains run every 30 mins. They are very busy trains so be prepared to stand. It’s only 4 stops to Monaco and takes about 20 mins. Once there we walked to Monte Carlo which took about 10 mins, saw the famous casino and had a stroll around. Went back to Monaco, visited the palace €8 admittance, not much to see in there to be honest and no photo taking. Next visit was the cathedral, lovely - ladies cover your shoulders or you can’t go inside. Saw Princess Grace grave and Rainier III. We then walked around, admiring how the other half live, vast amounts of wealthy on display, amazing cars and boats. Very beautiful place and recommend a visit. Easy to do on your own from port. No need for an excursion.
