What can We Do
We will arrive at our hotel in Roquebrune-Cap -Martin on a Sunday morning. Are the stores or sites open on a Sunday or Monday? Where can we go too park our car and take a local train to Nice and Cannes.Is there things to do in these locations on the Sunday or Monday. Advice is needed. thank you
Re: What can We Do
In summer, many shops (especially connected with food) will be open in the morning. Do not worry, this is not the desert on sundays and mondays, especially in the tourist season! You will find plenty to do!
Re: What can We Do
Roquebrunne is a quiet some might say sleepy little place - the peninsula of Cap Martin is mainly very expensive villas many of which are empty most of the time apart from a gardien and security minders. Its also handy for those who work in Monaco as its a stop down the line. From its station there you can easily pick up the train into Nice, which is where you have the largest choice of things to see and do.All the bigger towns like Monaco Nice Antibes and Cannes are lively on Sundays though many of the non-tourist shops shut, definitely after 12.30pm. Theres usually a SPAR or Huit a Huit open.
It really depends whether you have in mind a beach day or a city exploration. Your closest town after Monaco is Menton, which is well worth a day - interesting old town and fabulous botanical gardens like Val Rameh.
Mondays a normal business day but a few places that open Sundays take Monday off instead. Always worth checking through the hotel. You won't really need the car unless you are venturing into the back country.
Travel Tips for Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
A very special place along the Cote d'Azur
"Roquebrune, watch over red roofs into the blue"
Between Menton and Monaco, a large manucipality is stretching from the mountains towards the sea and includes the peninsula Cap Martin. The built area on the rocky slopes of the "Alpes Maritime" carries the name Roquebrune, which translated means something like "Brown Rocks". The situation of this place is truely superb. With Eze this is the most beautiful place along the Cote d'Azur and little less touristic. The combination of the long coastline around the Cape and the colourful houses of the ancient Roquebrune makes it to an absolute must for Cote-d'Azur visitors.
"A cape that stretches deep into the Mediterranean"
Roquebrune is situated on the rocks that rise from the mediterranean. The other part of this piece of the Cote d'Azur cuts deep into the sea as a peninsula-shaped cape: Cap-Martin. Here luxereous villa's and mansions compete with some hotels and other commercial enterprices about the ex[ensive soil that reaches into the blue water. Beaches are small, but a foothpath with wonderful views and nice relatively silent places rounds the cape.
"Ancient history combined with modern leisure"
Though history goes very far back in time along the Cote d'Azur coast, here - like in many other places - only few things remain. Roquebrune village is definately a perfect example. The winding small streets and stairshaped alleys that reach to the top on which a amazing castle is still waiting for it's visitors. From here one enjoys a breathtaking view over the red roofs of the village, along green palmtrees and bushes into the deep blue sea of the Mediterranee.
