Villefranche-sur-Mer is arguably one of the most beautiful harbor towns on the French Riviera, and that's saying something! This picturesque village and popular resort town sits high above the coastline, tucked into a bay between the Cap Ferrat peninsula and the Cap de Nice. From Villefranche, Nice is just a short boat or car ride away. Travelers who are in the know will have Villefranche on their French Riviera itinerary, as the bay of Villefranche is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Once on dry land, make your way to the Old Town, which sits high above sea level and is home to an impressive array of 12th-century buildings. Wander the narrow streets, and you'll find hidden art galleries, boutique stores, and family-run coffee shops where locals enjoy their morning espresso. For the best views of the harbor, head to the top of Saint Elme Citadel. This 16th-century fortress overlooks the coastline and is surrounded by verdant gardens bursting with flora and fauna.
Combine business with pleasure and take advantage of a sea excursion to get around. Reach your destination quickly and comfortably from a port, the pontoon of your hotel or restaurant, or the airport. If you want to enjoy the utmost luxury during your time on the French Riviera, then you might consider transferring from one destination to the next by boat. Wave goodbye to traffic jams and car rides and say hello to the wind in your hair and salty-sea-spray in your champagne!
