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.

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.

Loved this port! Did not book an excursion, but rather took a taxi to Nice where we rented chairs and an umbrella and spent the day on a private beach in front of one of the local restaurants. Then we walked around, had some gelato, and took a taxi back to port. A beautiful, busy place with wonderful architecture and spectacular vistas.

The best thing to do in this port was to visit Monte Carlo and Cannes. These two places will not disappoint. In Monte Carlo you experience the wealthy at its best with enormous yachts and sports cars zooming by. In Cannes go to the beach and take a dip in the Mediterrean Sea or simply lay on the beach.

It was the highlight of our vacation. Chance to go to Monte Carlo, Cannes or Nizza. The best cruise stop.

We spent time in Nice, Eze and Monte Carlo. I could have skipped NIce all together and spent more time in Eze and Monte Carlo. Eze is an amazing midevil village on top of a peak that was amazing.

Stunning little place, wish we'd have explored here more rather than gone into Nice really, although Nice is pretty beautiful too. Piece of advice; the hop on hop off open top bus to Nice has deleted stop number 2, but they don't tell you this! We almost missed the ship as we ended up waiting for an hour for the bus to come and ended up having to get a last minute taxi!
