transport around Villafranche sur mer

We will be ariving by cruise ship to Villafranche sur mer 22 Aug around lunch time. Our ship departs at 21:00. We would like to visit Monte Carlo,Nice and if time between to visit Eze village.
We are 2 adults and 4 kids. Do you have any information on taxi (maybe taxi/minibus) to drive us from Port to Monte Carlo via Eze or just to drive us to Monte Carlo? Do you also have an idea how much this will appx cost?

    very close to cruise terminal there is a bus stop. I go around the area by car thus can only direct you to the bus schedules site.
    August mind you is a busy vacation period here so there will be crowds. Nice is a better transport hub there.

    the local bus site in English

    for trains, the TER PACA will have all schedules, the site in French on trains
    ter-sncf.com/Regions/paca/Fr...

    however with your time noon to 21h your time is very tight to see these places in public transport, you may find a shuttle service but will cost you with 6.

    you have all info for public and hire transport at the Villefranche sur Mer mayor's office site
    villefranche-sur-mer.org/pag...

    you may contact them directly, they will definitively speak English.
    hope it helps

    gwened has given you web sites, but I'll suggest you cut your itinerary. Seeing much in any of these places takes time and you don't want to miss your boat. You could have a great day in Nice; there's a lot to see and do. Eze is lovely but much smaller. Monte Carlo is quite a distance so travel would eat your limited time. Something to think about.

    Enjoy your trip.
