Little late picking up this thread, but you are not that far from the botanical gem of the Hanbury Gardens - Giardini Hanbury - just the other side of the Italian border, at La Mortola. Magnificent setting and more than worth the effort

Also as well as aforementioned Menton sites (some of which are only by organised visits at certain dates in Summer - check tourist office) the Cactus collection high above Monaco is one of the best you'll see, in a quite extraordinary setting.

I'll pass on the North African cuisine - but there is a plenty in Nice.

Bloom on.

Re: Going To Menton

When are you going? I was in Nice to drive around the surrounds for 3-4 days last February and had a great time - had timed it for the Fesitval of Nice and it turned out the Festival of Menton was on as well - and thats really popular.

There are a few lovely gardens around. Check out my tips on Eze, which is a lovely hilltop village not far from Menton with stunning cactii botanical gardens on top - stunning!
I found the Rough Guide for France a fabulous source of info on what to see, whats where and so on.

but do have a look around VTers pages on the destinations and surrounding locations that you want to know as you get all sorts of info - with pics!
All the best.

Travel Tips for Menton

Sea promenades

by call_me_rhia

Menton is not only an old town, it's a modern sea resort, too. To walk the sea promenade is a nice way to go for a long refreshing walk - you'll also see many people walking there, and many more just jogging by. The walk, in fact, is never-ending.... once you leave Menton, you'll see yourself walking along the sea in Roquebrune/Cap Saint Martin. The main sea promenade in Menton is called Promenade du Soleil, which flanks the town's best beaches and which is lined with mediterranean flowers and tropical palm trees. Further on towards the old town, another interesting stretch of sea promenade, is Quai Napoléon III, where you can see a little harbour and an old defensive bastion that is now the museum cocteau.

Villa Maria Serena

by Polly74

The villa belongs to Lesseps family and it was constructed in 1880 on Charles Granier plans, architect of Paris Opera. This house has a beautiful garden.

As soon as you walk into the Maria Serena Villa, you are stunned with a gigantic "Oiseau de paradis " (Strelitzia angustifolia) which is 7 meters high! And also old Cycas revoluta. There, you can also admire the only outdoor Dragonnier des Canaries in Europe.
But the real " kings " of this realm are the palm trees.

flowers and gardens

by call_me_rhia

Menton is a city of flowers - and due to its mild mediterranean climate, perfumed flowers are all over - alonf the seafront promenade, in the old town, and in the several garden that can be found, either in town or in the proximity.

Some of these garden can be visited. They are: al Rahmeh Garden, Maria Serena Garden, Serre de la Madone Garden and Fontana Rosa Garden. A smaller but very central garden is the jardin du Palais Carnolès.

Les Colombières Garden and Le Clos du Peyronnet Garden are private gardens and can only be visited at some particular dates - usually in summer.

Regional Prehistory Museum

by Polly74

Menton's Musée de préhistoire Régionale is located two blocks northeast of the town hall (Mairie), at the top of the Rue Loredan-Larchey. The interior is fairly small (by big-city standards) but the presentations are outstanding. And the prehistoric history displayed is based around local discoveries in the caves of Vallonet, Lazaret and Grimaldi – with also the Vallée de Merveilles (Mercantour) and the Terra Amata site of Nice.

Menton

by dinhyen

This sleepy seaside resort of Menton is supposedly popular with the retirement community, or, as the locals more colorfully put it, it's "where people go to die". That wasn't why we came here, but we found the sea air refreshing and the tightly packed facades of pink and yellow and orange and violet quite an eye candy.
