We got off the ship and tried to find a reasonable tour to Pisa but were quoted approximately 500 euros for any type of trip whether it be a bus, taxi or coach. The train station was a good hours walk away from where the port buses dropped us off.
We took an open top bus tour around the city from just outside the port. I was unhappy that we were told the buses ran every ten minutes when we paid but we had to wait half an hour, however the tour was very nice and covered a lot of the city which would be impossible to walk.
Not for passengers who are nervous of heights, monkeys or other peoples driving! It was an experience, but one I will not be repeating with small children.
Walked around the city, was our least favourite destination of the cruise.
We walked around the city, nice to soak up the sights and culture.
Long wait for the Tender Boats which was blamed on the French Authorities. It took us an hour to get from the shore back onto the ship. Vilefranche itself is absolutely beautiful and well worth a walk around the bay. Beautiful location.
