Villefranche-sur-Mer to Monaco
This summer I'm going to go to Villefranche-sur-Mer and I want to take a train to Monaco. Can someone please tell me where's the train station, what's the ticket's price, how many minutes are between Villefranche-sur-Mer to Monaco, more or less the train's timetable and where's the station of Monaco? I just have one day to visit Monaco, so I wanna visit lots of things.
Thank you very very very much for your attention.
Best regards =)
Re: Villefranche-sur-Mer to Monaco
You can see the complete timetable here
There is a train about every 30 minutes every day and the journey is 15 minutes only. I do not know the fare but it is such a short distance it can only be a few Euros.
The station at Villefranche sur Mer is a little way out of town on the Promenade of des Marinieres about 400metres north of the harbour. If you go to www.maps.google.fr and search for Villefranche sur Mer the station is clearly marked on the map.

L’église St Michel
L’église St Michel, is one of the most interesting Baroque style monument of the Riviera, with graceful proportions, the wealth of its altar and its marble communion table. Also its magnificent 16th century lying wooden Christ, touching work carved by an unknown galley slave.
On one side is Villefranche-sur-Mer and Cap de Nice, and on the other is Cap Ferrat, with the Alps and the Mediterranean as opposite backdrops, the harbour of Villefranche-sur-Mer is considered one of the most scenic on the French Riviera. It is also the deepest natural harbour in all of the Mediterranean. These two traits have made this harbour a favourite among cruise ships and private yachts. Historically, it has hosted naval fleets as well. Seen in the attached photo is one of the large cruise ships that frequently stop here.
A tiny port serves the village of Villefranche and supplements the large harbour. Along the port are numerous delicious restaurants, graced by fantastic views. This area is the heart of town where most visitors end up taking a stroll.
Tina Turner's Villa Anna Fleur
Probably Villefranche's most famous resident is American rock singer Tina Turner, whose Villa is set high above Villefranche in a gated estate Le Castellet, Vinaigrier. The view from this high vantage point over Mont Boron and the Cap Ferrat is impressive and includes a view of Elton Johns villa overlooking Nice.
In case you might be thinking to drop by and discuss the merits of her latest album over the garden fence - don't. Le Castellet is a gruelling walk way up into the hills. The villa is unapproachable and invisible from the public highway and the property boundary is edged by thirty-foot high walls and screening - the first priority of the stars in selecting their Riviera home is privacy and security
