Menton

Now this is more like it!  Menton was only 2½hrs away from San Remo but worlds apart in its attractions.  We managed to get one of the very few visitor’s moorings in the Vieux Port with stunning views of the old town and foot hills of the Alps towering over us:

Menton is a really pretty town with two beaches, beautiful gardens, wonderful old streets, very large and elegant hotels and a very relaxing feel to it all.  You can even walk back into Italy in half an hour if you want a change of country.
