The coastline of Menton, France, seen from the Quai Impératrice Eugénie. Menton is a lesser known little town on the French Riviera, just before you cross into Italy, that beats its glamorous neighbours in charm and ambiance. It has a beautiful bay with houses in an array of warm tints spilling down the hillside to the sea. The view reminded me of pictures I’ve seen of Cinque Terre in Italy, but Menton is a lot less touristy (you can click through to the blog post for more photos)
4 Hours in Cassis, France: Top things to do in this coastal village of Provence. There are fine restaurants with authentic Provencal dishes, a renowned parfumerie, historic buildings, and more to see as you stroll the narrow cobblestone streets of the village and along the port with majestic Cap Canaille, one of the largest sea cliffs in Europe rarely out of sight.
