Menton

Art Museums · Gardens · Historic Sites
Pearl of France
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. You'll enjoy the charming old town that is a pedestrians-only region, which adds to the allure of the resort town. Due to the remarkably warm weather microclimate, Menton has historically been a popular place for affluent people to go to recover and become well again. As a result of this, the cemetery is a place filled with the graves of noble English, Italians, Germans, and Russians. You can get to the cemetery by climbing the steep hill, which has breathtaking views from the top. Be sure to try some of the local citrus fruit grown locally and known as some of the best citrus in the world. Put Menton at the heart of your travel plans by using our France day trip planner.
