Distance from port destination to train station

by jengrant1000

I'm a first time cruiser and the prices for the land shore excursions are expensive. Is it far to walk from the port to the train station and then in what order would you recommend seeing these towns if possible by train. Nice, Monte Carlo, French riviera, Monaco, cannes, Do you recommend we see anything else. thanks for you help. We have only 8 hours.

It was about 15 years ago but when we stopped there on a cruise I remember walking up the hill and catching a bus to Nice. After spending the morning there we caught another bus to Eze and then, again, by bus, to Monaco. Driving on some of those corniches is quite an experience.

Welcome to VT. I do not know the answer of how far it is to walk from the port to the train station. However, I spent 10 delightful days on the French Riviera at a condo in Nice and would highly recommend seeing Nice and the near-by perched village of Eze. You should check into taking the bus to the top of the hill and then walk a very short distance to Eze. Climbing up the hillside from the train station to Eze is what we did, however, it took us probably over an hour to do so and your time is better spent seeing Eze since you have only 8 hours. Monte Carlo is also nearby and well worth seeing.

Check out this Virtual Tourist member's TOTAL summary of Eze. You will not
find a better overall view of Eze and he even gives you the bus number to take
from the cruise line to Eze. I believe he has over 250 photos also. He also
has dozens of photos of surrounding villages. His member name is NiceLife...
as in Nice. He is what I consider an expert on the area. Good luck and enjoy the area. I found it to be wonderful and the people friendly, although few speak English.

I would agreee with Pedmar in not trying to do too much in 8 hours. As he says Villefranche itself is a lovely town to look around; lots of steep narow streets with some very interesting "covered streets" including La Rue Obscure. If you do want to go farther afield the station is about 1.5 km from the port and can take you to Monte Carlo (Monaco) or Nice. Eze is one of the most picturesque villages with very spectacular views of the coastline, and is a bus or taxi ride (no train), about 7 km. See my pages of Eze and Villefranche. Whatever you do, enjoy yourself in this lovely area. Bruce

Travel Tips for Villefranche-sur-Mer

Carriera Scura

by rickyvilla81

Rue Obscure, or Carriera Scura as they say in Provencal, is a strange oddity of a passageway that leads you beneath the old town itself. It feels like a walk back into Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel, lit by cobwebbed lamps and interseded with steeped ruelles and unexpected glimpses into buildings.

Prepare for sunshine!

by rickyvilla81

Beach stuff, such as swimming trunks (you will want to paddle when you see how clear the water is!), a towel, all that. It's the cote d'azur, man. A camera? Bring flip-flops. The beach is not as stony as Nice, but it's not as sandy as Cannes neither. It is made up of fine stones which can be nice on the feet, but you may not like it all the time.

Marché à la Brocante

by MM212

Every Sunday, Villefranche-sur-Mer hosts a lively flee market. Sellers of Antiques and other collectibles gather all day on place Amélie Pollonnais. If you are planning a day trip to Villefranche, then consider making it on a Sunday to enjoy a stroll through the flee market.

Sunday Lunch

by NiceLife

Villefranche is the perfect venue for lunch, and on Sundays an antiques market jostles with the diners tables, to form the perfect setting. Casual dining in the shadow of Hotel Welcome, or more expensive alfresco restaurants which line the bay.

Mediterranean colours are intense like the flavours. Pastel hues offset the richness of terracotta, verging towards dark red, contrasting with white blue or green shutters, resplendent with floral bouganvilea and geranium. Add azure blue skies streaked with white and you have a riot of colour.

The food shows strong italian influences, but so does the retinue of diners. Dark glasses essential, linger over chilled rose.

Paradise if it exists has no doubt a little corner like this. You can see why people come back again. And again and again.

Celeb-watch!

by NiceLife

The restaurants along the front at Villefranche have a high celebrity factor and the restaurant parking will reveal who has just popped over from Monaco for Sunday lunch. Carpaccio's is their favourite

In this case the white Rolls Royce with white leather seats, sporting the personalised number plate B7ORN indicates the renowned tennis player Bjorn Borg, is in town. The Monaco set are frequent visitors on account that Monaco itself despite all that money, lacks the essential charm of nearby Villefranche.
