Menton, France

Menton is a city in the far south-east of France. It is an old city, but it is not damaged by the jet set infestation that is killing all spontaneity in cities like Cannes and Monaco. Despite the fact it is quite touristy, the city is quite authentic and had a 'hip' atmosphere.

Directly to the east of the city is the Italian border (go there if you need cheap booze, cigarettes and fuel) and west of it is Monaco, the country Menton once belonged to. At the end of the 19th century, Menton wanted to be part of another country. They tried Sardegna, but they ended up with France.

The city has approximately 30,000 inhabitants but feels a lot bigger.

1. We stayed in Nice. To get to Menton from there, we had to transfer at Monaco Monte Carlo station.
