We stopped in Villefranche, a small town between Nice and Monte Carlo on a perfect, sunny day. I got off the ship with a fellow dancer, hoping to find food and wine. We took a tender boat from the ship to the terminal. During the boat ride, I enjoyed some fantastic views and a nice, light breeze.
Once on land, we walked through a small outdoor market, then wove our way through some small side streets, looking for a good place to stop. We settled on a restaurant near the water, where I had some delicious pizza and a mediocre glass of rose.
After lunch, my friend went to find her boyfriend, and I went back to the market to buy a locally made perfume. I then stopped at a small café, where I had another glass of rose. This time, the wine was great! Sitting outside, sipping vino, and people watching was the perfect way to end my day out.
This cruise has confirmed my desire to move to the Mediterranean. I never want to go home!
