Sightseeing in Alpes-Maritimes

Historic Site
“You can visit this villa as a museum but the most impressive part of it are its gardens. These are the most beautiful gardens in the French Riviera. If you go there by car, do make a stop on the Boulevard de la Corne d'Or. There is a special parking for those who want to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Bay of Villefranche!”
