  • Villefranche is what the Riviera should be. It's a quieter version of Nice or Monaco. The harbor is picture perfect. 
  • We must know, we go through the port area we long Research Institute (the only one who lies to the edge the water) basin of hull, discover what beautiful ships in dry dock, climb the stairs to finally discover the beach, confidential, but a different approach to the harbour. There are smaller and larger ships of pre. He must walk and look.
