Between Nice and Menton
- For relaxing urban strolls: Nice, Capital of the Riviera. It is surrounded by the Pays Niçois and its hills, villages, vineyards and nature. The nearby coast offers the destination’s most splendid postcard views with Villefranche-sur-Mer, Beaulieu and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, gems of the Riviera. It is in Nice that you will enjoy a walk along the famous “Promenade des Anglais”.
- Why not hiking a few kilometers inland in the “Valley of Wonders” ? You won’t believe you’re just a stone away from the Mediterrannean sea but it is definitely worth a day, sometimes to escape from the heat or from the crowd.
- French-Italian border: Menton, a paradise of gardens. Menton is also an incomparable showcase for the architectural styles which have shaped this secret Riviera. Here, the relief is very rugged, with perched villages like Sainte-Agnès, the highest coastal village in Europe, or Gorbio and Castellar. Menton is also the departure point for the Roya-Bevera valleys, which complete the impression of being both in France and Italy.
