About Villefranche

Lovely, much more laid back than other -- splashier -- Cote d'Azur resort towns like Nice, Cannes and Monaco, Villefranche, whose old town dates back to the 14th century, evokes a romantic, historic feel. For those weary of sightseeing, it's a terrific port for hanging out and relaxing.

Villefranche Cruise Reviews
We went to Eze and a walking tour of Nice. We were there on a Saturday and there was a great food market in Nice. After our tours we walked around Villefranche on our own before taking the tender back to the ship. Read More

We were not allowed to tender into Monaco due to bad weather so ended up tendering into Villefranche instead. Nice little town to visit briefly, but drinks in the cafes were expensive.Read More
