Last stop on the Côte d`zur on the Italian border, the seaside town of Menton offers streets shaded by fruit trees and stretches of sandy beach in addition to a colorful harbor with pastel mansions, a casino, and endless array of charming boutiques. The city is also known for its world-class gardens, the most famous being the Jardin des Colombieres and also boasts some fantastic museums dedicated to the great artist and film director Jean Cocteau. Add some amazing restaurants, as well as magnificent scenery, and Menton really is a must see. As a matter of fact, Menton is a charming town directly bordering Italy that provides a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Monaco and Nice.
Visit Menton (coastal city of museums, mansions and magnificent scenery on the border with Italy) before heading up into the hill towns of the Riviera (ancient perched villages overlooking the Mediterranean Sea) and finally Nice, rich in history and culture. Combine these destinations with a rental car to experience the culture and natural beauty of the Cote d`Azur. This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
