The City of Art and History
To celebrate A's birthday, we went to Menton, a French town just over the Italian border. The plan had been to go to Ventimiglia, but since the exit was closed, it forced us over the border and into Menton where we chose to stay.
This is one of the benefits of NOT making reservations beforehand. Freedom!
Parking was not that easy to find and when we did grab a spot, we were a little out of town, but it so happened that we had stopped in front of a hotel. Rather than waste time looking for other lodging, we checked in.
Even standing half hidden behind its concrete guardians the Basilique St. Michel commands your attention.
