Europe Here we come Part 2 “Villefranche, France”

Our first stop was Villefranche, France.  Breathtaking from the moment you disembarked from the ship.   Villefranche, also known as Villefranche-sur-Mer, is your gateway to the one of a kind French Riviera.  The French Riviera also referred to as the Cote d’Azur ( Blue Coast), offers beautiful beaches, remarkable weather and medieval communities along the way.  This bustling little French town has its own unique charm.

Villefranche offers long sandy beaches, terrace cafes, world -class cuisine and spectacular views. During your visit we made sure to tour nearby neighbours: NICE, CANNES & MONTE CARLO.   We hoped on the train that was located a short walk from the port.  Only 3 miles away from Villefranche is Nice, the “capital” of the French Riviera.

The views leave you speechless...
