What to see in Villefranche-sur-Mer

Nestled between scenic Nice and bustling Monaco, the quiet beach town of Villefranche-sur-Mer awaits discovery.

A more relaxed destination than its famous neighbours, Villefranche boasts all the charm of the French Riviera, but with fewer tourists. It's an ideal place to meander without intent, exploring narrow alleys and steep staircases as you take in the quintessentially Mediterranean scenery. A handful of waterfront restaurants and bars are located a short walk from the port. Outside seating is comfortable and romantic, making them a favourite spot to enjoy a cool drink or delicious local cuisine.

The must-see Plage des Marinières is a beautiful public beach which stretches 1 kilometre along the bay. Bring a book and towel to while away an hour in the sunshine or cool off with a dip in the azure waters. The small waves and shallow shore are perfect for paddling, though the coarse sand can bring a smile to the faces of visitors with tickly feet.

Following the curve of the beach is a railway line linking Nice to Italy. A short journey northeast, for example, takes you to glamorous Monaco. The playground of the elite, elements of the James Bond lifestyle are abundant in this principality. High-rise developments adorn the highly populated landscape which stretches across five Quartieres, including Monte Carlo. Here, sparkling supercars are parked outside exclusive casinos while designer boutiques sell exquisite creations to lovers of haute couture fashion. Monaco Marina is another enviable glimpse into the luxurious lives of those who frequent the region, as desirable super yachts from across the globe line up to draw stares from passers-by. Bars and restaurants along the marina's edge offer somewhere to sit while dreaming of ways to join the millionaire club.

The annual Monaco Grand Prix is an exhilarating experience if you're lucky enough to visit during May. All fans of Formula One racing, however, will delight in exploring the prestigious road track renowned for its difficulty. Landmark points, such as the Grand Hotel Hairpin and Nouvelle Chicane, weave through everyday life, offering an insight into the circuit's unique appeal.
