Villefranche-sur-Mer main data and map

Set in the heart of one of the world's most beautiful bays, Villefranche-sur-Mer sits on the steps of a natural amphitheatre - the terraced hills of the Riviera - gazing out over the sea. The plentiful sunshine of the Côte d'Azur, reflected in the enclosed bay, has given Villefranche-sur-Mer a warmth and climate all of its own and its famous rich, exotic vegetation. Long a spectator to centuries of history, Villefranche-sur-Mer has welcomed civilsations and has a rich heritage to show for it: the old city with its picturesque narrow streets, the mysterious «Rue Obscure», the Chapel Saint-Pierre, decorated by Cocteau, the fortified Port, and, last but not least, the magnificent Citadel built in 1557 by the Duke of Savoy. Today, those massive and majestic walls harbour the Town Hall, an open air theatre surrounded by gardens, three museums and a Congress Centre. Dating from 1295, Villefranche-sur-Mer is a rich and growing city just 5 km from Nice and 13km from Monaco. But, even today, it is a city with a very special character, and all the warmth and charm of a fishing village from a bygone age.
