    My husband and I are sailing on the Magic in June. Having a hard time choosing the "must see" sights when in Villefranche. Would love to visit St. Paul and possibly Eze, but not sure if there is ample time. Is this doable and what would be the be

    Hi Jodie -

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your question. The Mediterranean is a beautiful destination, full of culture & history. Europe offers so much to see and do, it will be a challenge to try and do it all in one trip. When my family and I visited Villefranche on our Med cruise a few years ago, we really enjoyed spending time in Nice for the day. We enjoyed it, but I do remember being stuck in a bit of traffic going through the various touristy routes. St. Paul was definitely high on my list to visit, but we unfortunately, were not able to add that to our tour that day. This port will require boat tendering (ship to port & back), so do allow some time for that.

    There is a port adventure that last ~9 hours (full day) and it goes through St. Paul, Cannes and Grasse. You get to see more, since you go down the coastline and back up to the hills to St. Paul. I imagine that would be quite a lovely trip, since you get to see that very picturesque side of the French Riviera. There are other port adventures that take about 4-5 hours, but none of them will include both Eze & St. Paul in the same tour. The tour that includes Eze is a 5 hour tour.  There will be Port Adventures that leave for their destination early in the morning (8 or 9am) and there may also be Port Adventures that leave in the early afternoon (~1pm). It will be difficult to squeeze in together though, as schedules might still change.

    Here's also additional info about cruising in Europe from my fellow mom, Marcy. I hope this helps!
