Menton Lemon Festival - Sunday Parade
We travel along the Cote D'Azur for your visit to the Menton Lemon Festival with entrance to the parade included. Every year for two weeks in the middle of February, the quiet, elegant town of Menton, on the French Riviera, literally bursts into life with zest and colour for the "Fete du Citron" carnival. Fruity floats depicting everything from horses, dinosaurs, elephants to Buddhas parade down the Promenade du Soleil for Sunday's Parade of Golden Fruit. We have a full day in the town before returning to our hotel for our evening meal.
On our half day excursion, we take the scenic drive along the Ligurian coastline, we visit one of its most delightful resorts, Alassio. This has been a preferred choice of destination for travellers since the 18th century, attracted by its 4 kilometres of fine sandy beach.
