Known for its own microclimate that is generally milder than the rest of the French Riviera, Menton is located very close to the border with Italy, whose influence is visible in the architecture and customs of the city.
Get out of town with these interesting Menton side-trips: Musée des Merveilles (in Tende), Sospel (Col de Braus & 5 Sens Rando) and Breil-sur-Roya (Ecomusee, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Palmes Beach, contemplate the long history of Basilica St. Michel, take a leisurely stroll along Esplanade Francis Palmero, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage du Fossan.
