This is my first time going to Menton, but my second time going to Monaco (and the rest of my south of France trip).

Menton is often treated as a “second priority” when it comes to the south of France. When you research about places to go in the French Riviera, it’s always Nice, Saint Tropez, Cannes, Eze, Antibes, and Monaco.

The only problem was, I decided to cancel it, not because of the price, but because of realising how long the meal would take. At best, it would probably take at least 2.5 hours, but it could potentially go up to four hours, and given the limited amount of time we had at Menton before we had to reunite with our friends in Monaco, we decided to spend our time elsewhere touring around Menton.
