My fav. city in France Dec 06, 2012
Menton is a little town located in the French Riviera. Not as famous as the sisters Saint Tropez and Monaco, Menton has a really family feeling.

The old town is amazing, probably the most amazing in France. The beach is nice, the water is warm and the locals are friendly.

Menton is the city of the "gardens" and you'll be greeted with flowery gardens everywhere.

When I was traveling thought Europe, I had a very limited budget and South France can be extremely expensive, so while in Menton, my boyfriend and I slept in the life guard little shack right on the beach.

The moon was full and there would be no better place in the whole city to be, but sleeping out there under the stars, for free, listening to the waves all night.

If you're adventurous and on a tight budget, this can be an option.

Day Trip to Menton from Nice Feb 24, 2012
I took a day trip from Nice to Menton. Took a train from Nice main station which cost be about 4 euros one way, and if I remember right it took about an hour to get there.

As you get out of the station in Menton, you will see a map - you need to walk (about 1 km) down towards the sea. Once you hit the sea, you need to take left. Once you walk another 1 km, you will see the old city on the left. It is quite small town, and you can walk through the whole old town in about an hour or so. The view of the old-town rising from the sea is quite breathtaking.
