  • This citadel of the sixteenth century, overlooking the beautiful Bay of Villefranche is not to be missed. Its restoration is exemplary and today housing the Town Hall and beautiful museums with as nice and rare characteristic is to have free entry. You will find a Museum of painting (Goetz), another of miniatures of the middle age amazing and especially the Museum Volti large and varied, this sculptor enough specialized in naked women! Don't miss this tour

  • It's a nice old palace located on a hill with great see view. There is a hotel built in the old building. Down the road there is a walkway along the sea which is recomended
  • I love this fortress..Theres a nice panorama overlooking villefranche sur mer.Underground museum,a big garden and an open door auditorium where the movie Pitch perfect 3 final performance was filmed. The best thing ,is this place is open to the public with no entrance fees to think off.
