Tram Tuesday - Villefranche sur Mer, France

The tram line serving Villefranche was part of the TNL line that connected Nice and other scenic locations along the French Riviera. From Nice it would travel to Villefranche and Beaulieau before continuing on to Cap Rouz, Eze, Cap d'Ail, and finally the Principality of Monaco. As you might expect, the route was primarily designed to transport tourists. What a great trip that must have been. Here are some views of the tram as it made its way through Villefranche.

And here are the backs of the cards in the same order.

This is the third part of a five-week series on the trams of the Côte d'Azur. Check back next Tuesday for part four.


  1. All those wonderful places the tram passes through, they do bring back memories for me even though I travelled by car.

    Odd that the first card has a Solignac postmark, which is the destination.

  2. That must have been a wonderful journey.

  3. What a fun way to see the sights!
