In the heart of the city
It is impossible to come to Menton without paying a visit to the historic old town. From the Italian border to Cap Martin, your eye is drawn to an array of colourful facades. Wander through the network of narrow streets some sunlit and warm, others shaded and cool. Step back in time, from the Middle Ages to the Baroque period. A charm with Italian accents radiates from this place. Having climbed the majestic steps leading up to Saint-Michel Basilica, take a moment in the square. Enjoy the dramatic mood of this Baroque setting! The view overlooking Les Sablettes Beach and the old port is well worth the climb. From here, by following the narrow steps, you reach the Vieux Chateau cemetery, which dominates the site and offers a breathtaking view of the entire bay. A stroll into times gone by!
