Villefranche was a tender which means that we docked a little way from shore and had a ferry bring us to town (it was still very close - a 5 min ferry ride). I had been to this area before and did not have anything special planned. My daughter chose to stay on board in the children`s program and I only took a quick tour of Villefranche. I was on port for about one hour. It is a charming community to lounge around and rest. I had been to Nice, Monaco and Monte Carlo before so did not venture out to these communities, however, they are very close by train and bus if someone wants to do this, it is quite feasible.
I was also looking forward to a relaxing day on board the boat.
