Menton Pictures, France
Central park, Jardins Biovès (Biovès Gardens), Menton pictures, bordered by the Casino at the beach end and the main road, Ave. du Verdun, along the west side.
The Bastion, a sort-of-fort that was the first line of defence for Monaco a few hundred years ago.
For those in search of free, off-street parking try the large quai to the left of The Bastion . The free parking next to varied yachts is still close to either Les Sablettes or du Fossan beaches. Go right and it’s pay up time.
Looking towards Italy.
Free parking to the right, pay parking left of the fountain or beside Les Sablettes beach beyond the yacht marina. Finding a parking space otherwise in Menton, even out of season, is a pure time-waster. The elevated autoroute in the background is the A8 as it enters Italy but it is also possible to enter Italy along the coastal road straight ahead in the photo.
