Cruises from Villefranche
Villefranche, aka Villefranche-sur-Mer, is a Mediterranean port in the Côte d'Azur region of the French Riviera. It is located about 6 km E of the city of Nice and 10 km SW of Monaco in one of the deepest natural harbours of any port in the Mediterranean Sea, and provides a safe anchorage for large ships. It is built on terraced hills that offer delightful views of the Mediterranean and the surrounding area. Visitors are met with a view of the massive wall and citadel, a fortress built in the 16th C but that now houses the Town Hall and three museums.
