We are staying in Villefranche-sur-mer during Grand Prix 2014. I have heard that not all trains stop at Villefranche on the way to Monaco during Grand Prix due to the crowds - is this correct? Any information on which trains do stop in Villefranche would be appreciated.
Joining a cruise in Villefranche-sur-mer next year, will fly to Nice the day before joining cruise, has anyone got any recommendations for hotels in Villefranche for 1 night? and is it easy to get to the cruise the next day? will be doing the same on the way back staying for night possibly in nice
We are staying overnight in Nice,and travelling by train to Villefranche the next day.
Will be sightseeing for the day in Villefranche before joining our cruise at 5pm.

Are there car rentals available at the cruise terminal at Villafranche?
My husband and I are taking a cruise and we dock in Monaco. We would like to see some of Monaco, but really want to visit Villefranche as my husband was home ported in VF when he was in the Navy. We dock at 8:00 am in Monaco and depart at 8:00 pm. What would be the best way to accomplish this taxi, train or bus? Is there a terminal for bus or train near the port where the ship docks in Monaco?
Our cruise ship arrives in Villefranche-sur-Mer around 9:00 am and departs at 10:00 pm. We would like to rent a car for the day to go to Cannes, then back to Nice, and then on to Monte Carlo before returning to the ship. Where would we rent a car for the day?
I have looked at the car rental sites, however they don't have a pick-up area that I can find close by. Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
Do you know of a scooter rental place and have an email I can send them a question?
My family and I will be arriving by cruise ship in Villefranche sur Mer at 9 am and departing at 9 pm. We would like to rent bikes and ride to Monaco via Cap Ferat and return to Villefranche sur Mer. How long will that take us to bike? Are there any cafes or sights along the way that should not be missed?
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?
Going to Villefranche this Thursday (10th May) - My idea of transfer from Nice airport to Villefranche would simply be to get a bus from the airport to the train station in Nice and then get a train to Villefranche (our apartment is only a short walk from Villefranche station).However it seems there are different ways of doing this journey. A taxi is out because they are far too expensive.
Any advice ?
My husband and I and three kids (ages 14,12,9) are arriving in Villefranche via cruise ship on July 2. We are in port for 12 hours. We hope to see VF, Nice and Monaco. Do you suggest getting a driver, taking the bus or taking the train. We have never been to Europe and this is very new to us, thus ANY suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
My husband and I will be on a cruise and on 1st August we will be stopping at Villefranche for 12 hours and would like visit Nice, Cannes and Montecarlo. Is this possible to do in the time we have? How do we go about it. Many thanks for any help anyone can give me.
Traveling on a cruise ship which docks in Villefranche-sur-mer. I want to get to Monaco with 3 kids and grandma but do not want to go on the ships excursion. Is there an easy way to get to Monaco by bus or train?

I am looking for a good location to spend a weekend away with my husband in June. I am looking for nice pavement bars where we can sit and people watch (perfection would be in a nice old town square),a bit of local shopping, nice local restaurants, bit of sunbathing etc. Do you think Villefranch-Sur-Mer fits the bill? What would you do if you had a weekend to spend in Villefrance-sur-Mer? Thank you VTers!
hi, taking the brave decision of not booking a car in villefranche this summer. What is the easiest way to Marineland from VSM by train ? thanks.
I will be arriving by cruise to Villefranche on July 30th at 7am. I would like to go by bus or train to Montecarlo/Monaco departing the port at 8:00am. Around 10:30am I would like to go to Eze (old town). Around 1pm I would like to go to Nice (old town). Finally around 5:30pm I would like to go back to the port at Villefranche. Could you please tell me where can I catch each bus/train? The bus number for each route? the schedule? and the cost?
Thank you in advance for your help!
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 =)
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.
I will be taking a trip to Villefranche-Sur-Mer in June and had a few questions.
First, we will be taking a day trip to Monte Carlo, and I was wondering if I will be allowed to take my camera into the beautiful casino there? In America, cameras are not allowed in casinos. If I can't take my camera in, will there be storage so I can go in without my camera? Also, I am not rich... Am I going to look like an idiot if I go into the casino and try to play blackjack for 10 to 20 Euros per hand? I do not know the table minimums there.
Second, my girlfriend really wants to take a day trip into Italy, and I was hoping someone knew the best places to go that would still be close enough to VSM to go and come back in one day.
Thanks for all the help. I appreciate it.
Can anybody tell me, does the bus from Gare Routier to Villefranche stop near the Hotel Crillon.
I am arriving in nice at ll:40pm and wish to take a taxi to Ville France sur mer and wish to know the aveage fare.
Thank u Nicelife for suggesting The Crillon Hotel, on my last trip to VF I met a chap on the bus who has stayed there for years, and I am amazed at the reviews, but as you say people wanting 5 star for 2 star prices. I have booked it and will let you know. Do you have any 'must dos' for myself and my friend when in Nice for the 4 days. Is it worth going into Italy for a day, any other trip you would suggest ?.
Many thanks for all your help.
I have been to Villefranche on hols. a few times but want to go to Nice for a few days in early May. Want to see the Russian cathedral, walk the promenade in the evenings etc. Can you recommend a small hotel near the flower market/old town and walking distance to promenade that is not too expensive.
I just love this part of France.
Going on a cruise this Sept and will be stopping in Villefranche (12hrs)would it be enough time to visit St. Paul de Vence? What is the best way to get there keeping the time factor in mind? Looks like a beautiful place to visit. Would like to visit somewhere other than the usual tourist stops. Any thoughts on Eze as well? Six in our group.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET FROM VILLEFRANCHE (the cruise ship tender) to Eze. ?
we will be spending one day in Villefranche and would like to go to St. Paul De Vence? How do we get there and how far is it from Villefranche? Is it worth the trip? Also, what Souvenir would most celebrate this area of the French Riviera?
I've heard that you can hike from villefranche to eze. Does anyone know how long the hike takes or the route?
Any other hiking suggestions?
