Cadiz: A Lazy Walk Through Town

Cadiz: A Lazy Walk Through Town

Not long ago we spent a morning walking through Cadiz, Spain. We were in port aboard the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas; one of our favorite cruise lines, and certainly one of our favorite ships.

We’ve been to Cadiz before. It’s one of the more popular stops along the western Mediterranean cruise ship route, or at least it seems that way. What we found was a lazy little town full of shops, restaurants, bars, and coffee houses.

 It was definitely worth a bit of time to explore, and definitely worth coming back. So please, take a moment and have a look at the video we prepared showing Cadiz, Spain.

Cadiz, Spain was a peaceful and tranquil town. At least, that’s the way it looked to us. We spent just a brief amount of time here one morning, away from our cruise ship, the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas.

Villefranche – A Walk Along the Southern France Seaside Town

Villefranche – A Walk Along the Southern France Seaside Town

 Not long ago we stopped in at Villefranche, a little French town along the Mediterranean coast. We were aboard the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas for a western Mediterranean cruise, then an Atlantic crossing back to Florida.
 
Villefranche is situated about 25 miles east of Cannes, and about an hour and twenty minutes travel time by train. And of course, it’s literally next door to Nice.
 
Here are some still images we stitched together into a short video to show what we discovered just walking around this picturesque town.
 
 
Villefranche is a small seaside town along the French Rivera near the cities of Nice and Cannes. It has no docks big enough to accommodate cruise ships but it’s a popular stop nonetheless, with cruisers going ashore on tenders.
