Top 5 travel tips in Villefranche-sur-mer

1. Visit the impressive Citadel

The impressive architecture of Villefranche's imposing citadel is worth visiting.

2. Attend the Carnival in Villefranche

Villefranche’s fishermen stick to traditions and every year in February they celebrate Carnival. But the celebration of this carnival is a bit different. They celebrate it with a Bataille des Fleurs (Battle of Flowers). The parade is on the water and the boats are decorated with colourful flowers that they throw at each other and to the people. Then, another parade with music and costumes is celebrated along the streets.

3. Wander the old town

The Old Town is a great option to take pleasant strolls and get lost in the steep, narrow streets amongst old colourful facades, quaint cafes and unique independent shops. Visit the 1260 passageway under the harbour front houses dating back to 1260, known as the Rue Obscure or “Dark Street”. A spooky but interesting experience.

4. Visit Saint Pierre Chapel

The little Roman chapel of St Pierre is next to the port and it is dedicated to the Patron Saint of fishermen, St Peter. Inside you can admire the frescoes after the restoration by Jean Cocteau.

5. Taste the delicious French cuisine

Among the several line-up of restaurant terraces along the seafront, you can have fantastic meals with succulent recipes with seafood, shellfish and local produce. Try the restaurant “Sweet Life”, a shabby-chic lounge-bar with international bistro cuisine. In the old part of town, Les Garçons offers creative cuisine in a romantic atmosphere by twinkling lights at the bijou stone square. Try the star of the menu - red tuna tartare with avocado. Delicious!
