It is practically impossible to stay in Menton without strolling down the pedestrian street. This central street is a must for all visitors to Menton as it is packed with shops and restaurants and extends from the sea front to the "Campanin" garden.
The Municipal market is located between the old port and the old city. Overflowing with colours, exotic aromas and flowers from the South of France, look out for Mentonnaise specialities such as lemons, spices, "barbbajuans" (fried vegetables and rice),and Socca... delicious! The warm welcome given by the local shopkeepers gives a glimpse of the Mentonnaise conviviality.
One can find the same friendly atmosphere in the Careï valley where the Careï market sets-up under blue and white stripped canopies, the colours of Menton city.
