Relaxed mountain and coastal daywalks in the stunning Cote d'Azur
Located on the Franco-Italian border, on the edge of the warm Mediterranean sea, Menton is a delight for any visitor.
It is easy to see how it earned its nickname 'The Pearl of France,' combining a city of gardens, seaport, beach resort and a paradise for hikers all rolled into one! It has won 'the best city of flowers' in France five times, with its exceptional sunlight and subtropical climate perfect for growing orange trees, palm trees and vibrantly coloured mimosa.
With the Alpine chain dropping into the sea at the level of French/Italian border, Menton is also an ideal location for hiking. Many of the trails start directly from the town and gain altitude in a short distance, offering some of the finest views of the Riviera.
On a clear day from the mountains above Menton, it is possible to spot Corsica!
