Villefranche Shore Excursion: Private Half-Day Trip to Nice

Villefranche Shore Excursion: Private Half-Day Trip to Nice

Nice is one of the most famous towns on the French Riviera, so when you’re in port in Villefranche-sur-Mer, you’ll want to make the most of your time to explore this delightful coastal town. A private, half-day shore excursion will allow you just that. Start your private Nice sightseeing tour with a visit to Castel Park, which overlooks the Bay of Angels and Nice’s Old Town, the site of the trading town founded by the Greeks 2,700 years ago.

Immerse yourself in Nice's history on Place Garibaldi, and marvel at the modern New Town as you stroll along the Promenade des Arts, home to the Modern Art Museum, Sosno's library and the Acropolis exhibition center.

You’ll then make your way to Cimiez, the winter home of Queen Victoria. You will have the opportunity to visit the Matisse Museum (closed on Tuesdays) or walk among the olive tree gardens and the 15th-century garden of the Franciscan Monastery. You will also visit the extraordinary Russian Cathedral, the most beautiful Russian cathedral outside of Russia itself.

Return by the Promenade des Anglais, passing its famous landmarks and Belle Epoque buildings. End your Nice sightseeing tour with a visit to the flower market in Cours Saleya.

You’ll be taken back to Villefranche port, where you can explore on your own if you have time left before boarding your cruise ship.
