Another great port, we have been here quite a few times so just decided to take a walk and grab a coffee in the beautiful village.

Did the Monaco GP under our steam (booked stand tickets directly) but for reasons already explained the day was undermined by the nagging doubt that we would not make the final tender back to ship

We were tendered to the port. Lots of little streets and restaurants. Its got a very nice beach. We took the oppotunity to get the train into Nice. Takes about 10mins and costs about 7 euros. However was disappointed with Nice and the beach was stones and pebbles, not what we expected at all. We were soon on our way back to Villefranche. Read Less

We did the walk along Sentier du Littoral; you can walk along the water from Villefranche to Nice (sort of)--you come off the path before you reach Nice. The path is rocky with many ups and downs ending with a 200 step stair back to the road, BUT the views along the way are beautiful. We are 71 years old, so if this sounds like your kind of thng, you ceratinly can do it.Then you can contiue on along the orad to the city. Take the #100 bus back to Villefranche or if you have the time and energy, stay on the bus to Monaco. Read Less

The casino was open, and no charge to get into the slots--but other than 4 machines, the rest were blocked off. Lots of people must have enjoyed at, as we saw endless shirts from there onboard for the rest of the cruise.

Beautiful little town with easy access by train to Monte Carlo, Nice etc . It's not necessary to book an excursion from this port and you could easily spend a lovely and relaxing morning here without going further afield.

Villefranche (Nice, Eze, Monaco): Here we tendered in, which went smoothly. Had no plans but knew we wanted to explore Eze and Monaco. Once we arrived at the dock there were plenty of taxis..fare to Eze 40 Euro, fare to Monaco 70 Euro. Be sure to always ask the fare before you get in the taxi! Our driver offered to take us for a 4 hour sightseeing tour for 280 Euro which we agreed to and it turned out great. He took us to the places we wanted to go and dropped us off exactly where we needed to be and was waiting for us when we were done. Eze has an old medieval castle/village up on a hill which has been converted into upscale restaurants and shops and art galleries. We then went to Monaco and walked around the palace area and after that we went to Monte Carlo and walked around the casino. Beautiful and interesting place..lots of gardens and statues. Read Less

Last year we had stayed on holiday near Nice and spent time in Villefranche, so had no desire to do the same again, and instead decided to go to Monaco. This was my husband's wish list item as he wanted to walk the F1 circuit. The train station is a bout 10 mins walk from the port terminal, and there were ample staff on hand to sort us out with tickets. Our train came in almost immediately so within about half an hour we were stepping off in Monaco. We had some guides about doing the walk which were great once we actually found where the start was meant to be. Some conflicting advice, and also confusion about the correct road saw us head off on a wrong road initially but we were soon sorted out. The nice weather had come back and the uphill walking took its toll to start with but what goes up does have to come down! We didn't do any diversions into the town itself at all, though the route takes you right by the casino so it's impossible to miss that sight. Being entirely a street circuit it is possible to walk the entire route in race order and that's exactly what we did. By the end we contemplated doing some more of the town but were tired and decided against. We wandered round some streets but took a lazy option to head back as the walk had been our mission and we had achieved that! I have written a separatye document with instructions of the route, including photos but not figured out if I can attach that there , seems not! Back in Villefranche we wandered a little round there, stopped in bar to get a sandwich only to be told they had none so we ended up getting a late lunch back on the ship! Villefranche itself does have some lovely areas to explore but having done them just a year ago we could afford the lazy approach again! Read Less

Loved it. Will be back. Beautiful little rustic town on the French coast. Spent the day in Monte Carlo then back here for a few hours eating mussels and drinking French wine right on the waters edge.
