We saw a lovely sculpture display by Voeti. The placement of the sculpture arount the citadelle was beautifully done. The garden and views where worth seeing as well.

This is a 16th century fortress that overlooks (protected in older days) the harbor. Free to walk around and houses a couple of museums (fee) and shops. Old canons still in place. Worth seeing if you are in town.

We really enjoyed our visit here. There's so much to see and it's all free. The staff are friendly and very helpful. One would need at least two hours to see everything. There's also a beautiful terrace garden with great views of the harbour.

Interesting little museums very close to the harbour. Even in the middle of summer we were some of the only people there

There are a few nice (and free) museums in Citadel St. Elmo and I especially liked Volti Museum (adult audience only). Don't go out of your way to get there but it's a fine place if you're visiting Villefranche.

Plan over an hour, much to see because you're entering various museums while touring an old fortress. Has many nooks, tunnels, underground passageways which are museums, also has a beautiful views and gardens and they show movies outdoors sometimes. Make sure you've wandered down every...More

If you arrive by cruise ship this is one of the first things you'll see when you land in Villefranche. The museums are all free and a great way to get out of the sun for a while. Although you'll want to take some photos...More
