Docking in the cruise port of Villefranche

The cruise port of Villefranche, your starting point for great excursions


During a cruise vacation to France, Villefranche-sur-Mer is often on the program. This small town is wonderfully located along the Western Mediterranean and you would never expect it as a major cruise port. Its central location means you can make different excursions along the French Riviera. Therefore, cruises to Villefranche-sur-Mer are very popular.


The port and town of Villefranche-sur-Mer are small. Therefore, cruise ships cannot moor. Your cruise ship will drop anchor in the bay and you will come ashore by tender boat. The tender boats dock at Port de la Santé in the center of Villefranche-sur-Mer, close to most sights. The location of the port is ideal for an excursion along the Cote d'Azur to places such as Nice, Cannes or Monaco. Because of its convenient location, Villefranche-sur-Mer has become a major cruise port in the Mediterranean.
