Built on a terraced hillside, the beautiful French Riviera town of Villefranche-sur-Mer enjoys spectacular views over the shimmering blue Mediterranean. Situated in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Cote d'Azur the town is close to the French/Italian border and just a few miles east of Nice. Although it has been a settlement since Roman times, Villefranche-Sur-Mer as we know it today was founded by Charles II of Anjou, Count of Provence in 1295.[+]
