What makes Villefranche so special?
Heaped above an idyllic harbour, this picturesque village with imposing citadel overlooks the Cap Ferrat peninsula and thanks to its deep harbour, is a prime port of call for this summers “A Taste of the French Riviera” cruise onboard The Royal Clipper. The 14th-century old town, with its tiny, evocatively named streets broken by twisting staircases and glimpses of the sea, is a delight to amble (preferably broken with a long lazy lunch on the water’s edge or bijou old-town square).
The Bay of Villefranche is often referred to as one of the five most beautiful bays in the world, nestled between Nice and Monaco. Whether you want to just relax, enjoy the beach, shop in the local markets, or sit in a café and take in the beautiful scenery, you will have an absolutely delightful time. Additionally you will certainly enjoy the French lifestyle, cuisine, and delicious produce and wine during our time in Villefranche. As we are docked overnight, passengers will have the option to dine on fresh seafood in one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants in Villefranche.BOOK NOW
