MENTON

CONCIERGE – The F1 Inside Track - - BEYOND THE TRACK | EXPLORE -

Menton is so fa­mous for its lemons it has a three-week fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing them in early spring, but its many botan­i­cal gar­dens – in­clud­ing the olive and lemon groves at La Citron­neraie – are worth a visit any time of the year. Leg­end has it that Adam and Eve brought lemons to Menton after they fled the Garden of Eden – by the mod­ern era they were so abun­dant they were the main­stay of the lo­cal econ­omy.
