Silversea Luxury Cruises A Villefranche

Villefranche

Often overlooked as a picturesque accompaniment to Nice's glorious seafront, Villefranche-Sur-Mer is a delightful destination in its own right. In fact, many prefer Plage des Marinières's sand to the pebbles of Nice's renowned Promenade des Anglais, and its gently curving bay provides the perfect location to lie back and soak up some sun, getting yourself firmly into the groove of the relaxed Riviera lifestyle.

A pretty Old Town of bright colours and floral decorations flows down to the sea to the right of the beach, and this charming part of town bustles with shops selling everything from fragrant local perfumes, to outdoor cafes - where you can watch the world go by over a cup of strong espresso. A trip to nearby Èze will give you the chance to rise above the area's amazing scenery, and observe thrilling views of the ocean and St. Jean Cap Ferrat from a scenically ruined castle. The village's winding labyrinth of streets offers a stunning escape, and a rustic charm that marks a refreshing contrast to the glitz and glamour of the Riviera's more upmarket destinations. Don't miss the Jardin Exotique, which offers narrow walkways through rows of spindly-fingered cacti, and flowering plants of interest from across the globe.

Upon arrival at the capital of the French Riviera, drive along the "Promenade des Anglais", a splendid palm-lined boulevard stretching along the Baie des Anges. You pass landmarks like the legendary Negresco, an imposing hotel with its Belle Epoque façade. See the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, built with pink bricks, light gray marble and vivid colour ceramics, all sitting beneath six onion-shaped domes that lend an exotic touch to the Nice landscape. Next, visit the Old City, where tall houses tightly-packed across narrow streets are often festooned with bright flowers or hanging laundry, and designed to provide shade and keep the streets cool during the long, hot summers.

The only town on the coast to be protected by ramparts it has managed to conserve historic monuments from each period in its heritage.

During your tour you overlook Port Vauban, Europe's largest yacht harbour, where the billionaires' super yachts are anchored.


Absinthe Tasting

After your walking tour, experience an Absinthe tasting in a quaint shop that sells regional delicacies and olive oil. The tasting takes place in a beautiful 19th century vaulted cellar with a Roman well, located underneath the market. There, amidst wonderful "Belle Époque" décor, taste toasts of tapenade, (an olive & caper paste) and pissaladière, (an open onion tart prepared by the nearby baker especially for the occasion). You have the opportunity to taste a small glass of Absinthe, the famous wormwood-based alcoholic beverage, so dear to French poets in the 19th century. The Absinthe is served from a beautiful crystal fountain on a sugar cube placed on a special spoon. Marvel in this hidden gem that on your own you may have never discovered.
