Also on the French Riviera is the town of Menton, a little known place slightly overshadowed by its more famous local cousins, Monte Carlo and Saint-Tropez. If you consider yourself a foodie however, then Menton is the place to be. Home to Mirazur, which happens to be number 28 on the list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, is the jewel in the crown of this French delight.
Menton is also said to have its own microclimate that’s 3 degrees warmer than the rest of France, so if you’re a food loving sunworshipper, then you’ll especially love it here! For culture vultures, the Jean Cocteau Museum is a must visit if you’re a fan of the legendary film director.
Since Menton is so close to Italy, you could choose to cross the border and take in some Italian sights on your travels, too.
