Private Vehicle - Full Day
Nestled between the iconic cities of Nice and Monaco lies Villafranche, a charming seaside with one of the deepest natural harbors in the Mediterranean Sea. While in town, design your own itinerary and experience Villafranche with the assistance of your own knowledgeable guide. With medieval architecture, mouthwatering food and pebbly beaches, this little Mediterranean gem has something for everyone. Head to the Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild for a privileged glimpse into the aristocratic lifestyles of the early 20th century. Soak in the medieval atmosphere in the alleyways of the Old Town and walk the 130 meter long Rue Obscure, a street that used to be part of the 13th century defensive town wall where locals would hide from invaders.
A drive up to the Fort du Mont Alban, or Castle Hill, rewards you with splendid photo ops of Villafranche and the surrounding region. In the heart of the city is the Eglise Saint Michel, a 16th century Baroque church with notable artworks including a recumbent sculpture of Christ, known as Christ of the Galleys. Take a break to enjoy some delicious seafood or join with friends for a wine tasting between sites.
