October 16 Villefranche, France

Villefranche, France is also known as Villefranche-sur-Mer. It is the gateway to the one of a kind French Riviera. This Bustling little town has its own charm. You are very close to Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo.

I wanted to head to the Eze le Village. Floating high above the sea is a flowery and flawless village. There are boutiques, steep cobbled lanes and magnificent views.

Today was a tender day. We had priority tender since we are Elite on Celebrity. We got off around 0900. The train station is hidden but Jim found it and we bought our tickets to EZE.DSC_2022.jpgDSC_2021.jpgDSC_2023.jpg

Well the setback today all buses were on strike. We planned to take the bus when we got off the train.l I had read there is a trail you can walk called Friedrich Nietzsche,We found a local man and he showed us where to start.IMG_1952.jpg
We met another couple who was waiting for the bus and we told them the buses were not running today.They decided to hike the trail too. They were from Canada and spoke French as well as English.The hike took us over and hour. It was very rugged and not much shade. We had brought plenty of water. Jim said we are going where?????? I said up there!!!

After we were done the Canadian couple found us and wanted to share a taxi to train station. Their names was Diane and Daniel we hired a private taxi for 25 Euros each. We felt is was worth it not to have to climb all the way down.
