    Villefranche-sur-Mer

    March 24 in France ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Nach langer Fahrt vom Bodensee (Vorfrühling), durch die Schweiz (Wintersport und Schnee bei 2000 m), an Mailand vorbei ... sind wir jetzt an der Cote d'Azur (Vollfrühling). Viel Polizei überall, denn im Nachbarort trifft der französische Präsident heute und morgen den chinesischen Staatschef. Jetzt gehen wir Wein und Käse kaufen.Read more

    Villefranche-sur-Mer, Altstadt

    March 25 in France ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Von unserem Appartement hoch über der Küste sind wir heute ca. 800 Stufen in die Altstadt herunter und 800 Stufen wieder herauf gestiegen. Eine sehr schöne verwinkelte Altstadt haben wir gesehen. Die Stadt ist noch sehr friedlich, es ist noch in der Vorsaison.

    French Riviera Tour - Villefranche Sur

    June 27, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Last day in the south of France! Enjoyed my time here and it’s a great spot to visit and experience a different lifestyle as it’s so laid back and decadent! Just a few snaps from the beach as that’s all that’s here really!

    First Night/Dinner in Nice

    July 30, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 79 °F

    After checking in, we headed over to old town to stretch our legs after sitting still most of the day. Before we made it down there, we climbed up to the city's observation point to get a good view of Nice and see the very pretty man-made waterfall.

    After taking in the layout of the town, we headed down to see the cathedral at the center of town, have a drink, and do some people watching.

    The concierge had recommended a restaurant featuring live jazz, which caused Laura's face to light up, so we headed there for dinner and had another fantastic meal, wine, and dessert (apple tart flambe). It's a good thing we're doing so much walking to burn it all off.

    Villafranche sur Mer, France

    June 21 in France ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    We finished our day excursion and arrived back at the ship in plenty of time. No so sure about others though. I saw a couple of people running for the gang plank 10 minutes after departure time and even though they made it, the crew appeared to be looking for others.

    I'm really impressed with the cruise so far. Everything is so spic and span and the crew are exceptionally friendly. My only complaint is having to say the same greeting 20 or 30 times depending on the time of day.

    Jo is a bit overwhelmed with the number of people everywhere and the size of the buffet. I love the buffet with all the choices available. A bit of this and a bit of that goes a long way.

    We docked on the Cote de D’azur this morning at a place called Villefranche sur Mer. It is a port next to Nice but unfortunately we won't visit there. Luckily, we have been there before and remember it very well. We joined our tour and drove to the mountain village, Eze. The views were breathtaking and many a photo was taken. It sits about 800 metres above sea level with panoramic views of the sea and coastline.

    From there, we went to the famous perfume factory, Fragonard. Jo and granny were there 6 years ago and Jo was happy to replenish her perfume stocks. It's not everyday we get to visit France or the perfume factory so best to make the most of it.

    From Eze, we went to Monte Carlo. Saw so many Ferraris, Porsches, Aston Martins etc., it wasn’t funny. It's our second time here but we were able to see sights we missed last time. A very spectacular city with out of this world scenery. How the other half live!!

    We gave discovered there are 3 classifications of people on a cruise...the bogans...the average people and the pretenders who think their you know what doesn't stink. The latter forget their flatulence gives them away. These people take great delight in volunteering how many cruises they've been on. Between 50 and 65 is considered a good number and worth bragging about. I feel like asking them if they have a life or if cruising is the only way they can pass the time. Still each to their own I suppose.

    We went to the cabaret tonight and had a great time. The artist was Claire Maidin whom I had never previously heard of but she was sensational. Exceptional pianist, vocalist and performer. We loved it and will back there for tomorrow night's show which is primarily dancing.

    Another perfect 33 degree day........

    Corsica Ferry

    September 2, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    After a spectacular ride down from Sisteron to Nice I took the ferry over to Bastia. I was a bit excited whether I will manage to drive on and in the ferry but all went well and I relaxed over the 6 hour passage.

    Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

    September 18, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    Today we are anchored off the beautiful little French town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. After breakfast I got the tender across as I had planned to have a mooch about, one thing I did want to see was Rue Obscure, which is a 13th century covered street hidden beneath the buildings in the old town. It's a wonderful atmospheric little street, and you feel transported way back in time as you walk it.
    After that I had a walk up to the Citadel Saint Elme, which now houses three small museums, a military museum, a film museum and the third is more of an art gallery with work by the sculptor Volti.
    All in all a very pleasant and interesting couple of hours, and most importantly to me all completely free.
