“Impressive indeed”

Les Musees de La Citadelle

Reviewed July 3, 2013

We loved wandering about La Citadelle... no charge to do so... and it brings visions of ancient days to mind... a great place to daydream awhile. While we were here, we also came upon a semi-circle of the most beautiful blue-flowering trees on the Citadelle grounds... in full bloom at the end of June... not sure what kind they were, but they were stunning.

Always a pleasure to return to Villefranche and visit the Citidal, the gardens and the museums here. No cost to get in and wander through the old fort. Stunning views over the upmarket resort and it has an open air theatre/cinema screen as well. Take a stroll round the outside of the Citidal beside the sea afterwards.

visited many times, but always return as views over Villefranche and its harbours are wonderful. Musees always very interesting and varied, and this year there is a beautiful garden below the walls of the fort and an open air theatre.

The citadel itself is lovely to see but not worth going for on its own - I didn't go into the museum. The view out to sea, however, is stunning.
