This is a regular haunt for us in winter, one of our favorites. Just a E1.50 short bus-ride from Nice, its worth the trip. Go down the steep steps on the right hand side of the ancient fort and walk the medieval path along the...More

From Nice we took the bus to Villefranche for a visit. After a good walk, we ended up here for lunch and a cold beer. The waterfront tables are extremely nice. The food is ok but the view is amazing. The staff was nice and...More
