Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

Yesterday's Tram Tuesday post featured Villefranche-sur-Mer, so I thought I'd show some additional views of the city. Apart from being a tourist destination on the French Riviera, Villefranche-sur-Mer has been important as a port for military ships as well as cruise lines, since the it is one of the deepest natural harbors in the Mediterranean. If you want to visit Villefranche-sur-Mer, you can still book a room at the Welcome Hotel, shown on the first two cards.

The Rue Obscure, which was built in the 13th century as a refuge against attacks, still looks the same today.

Here's the port with military ships.

Here are the backs of the first two cards.


  1. This looks like a city I have to add to my to-visit list. Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief was filmed here.

  2. I love the tinting on the first card and the name of the hotel.

  3. Postcardy said the same thing I was going to write...the tinting on the top card is very pretty.
