A highly colorful city
Located on the Mediterranean Sea on the Italian border, Menton enjoys an almost subtropical climate. On dozens of sandy beaches where small pebbles can bask in the sun 331 days a year and no mosquitoes!
The cobbled alleys and medieval staircases that wind through the old town are dark, but here and there the sun shines brightly on the colorful houses in soft tones of ocher, gold or pink. A city built between the colors of Lisbon and Italian-French architecture. While strolling, you will discover Saint-Michel Basilica (a jewel of Baroque art), its café terraces with old-world charm and its sunny cobbled streets. A little further away is the enigmatic Chapel of the White Penitents, highly decorated. Continuing the ascent to the top of the city, a peaceful place, it offers the best views of the city and the sea.
Obviously, the city offers a culinary culture on horseback between France and Italy. Dear gourmets in search of tranquility, here is a Mecca for a getaway in the middle of summer.
This city is a breath of paisibilité during the high season on the French Riviera.
