On our last day in Monaco we didn’t have to fly out of Nice until later on in the afternoon, so we still had nearly a whole day up our sleeves. Most sensible people (like my husband!) would opt to laze around, enjoy a rest from our busy schedule and just stay local near to our apartment. Not me though – I still wanted to jump on a bus and explore the last bit of the French Riviera that we hadn’t gotten to yet. So I jumped on the 100 bus and took the 45 minute trip along the beautiful coastline to Menton, the last French town before the Italian border.
Menton is a beautiful little French town that feels just that little bit different from all the other French Med towns we had visited. Owing to it’s closeness to the Italian Ligurian coastline, Menton definitely had a bit of an Italian flair to it. For my morning here I just walked around, grabbed a gelato and did a bit of exploring through the market. It was a lovely few hours to get the ‘feel’ of this gorgeous town, but with a plane to catch I couldn’t stay as long as I would have liked.
