Menton’s Lemon Festival has been around since the 1930’s. The basic idea is Citrus, and the festival known to the French is Fête du Citron.   Menton, which is tucked along the coast next to Italy, becomes so popular at the end of February due to its giant designs made exclusively from citrus fruits.  Every year, the Menton Lemon Festival attracts more than 250,000 people, requires the help of over 300 workers, and uses 200 tonnes of citrus fruits for the event. Buildings, cars, animals, and bridges are only some of the things built with fruit to create this amazing and surreal festival.

We will have a days excursion to nearby Nice for the Flower Battle Parade. It was on the seafront, along Promenade des Anglais, that the first Flower Parade (Bataille de Fleurs) was held in 1876.   Soon, the timid exchanges of bouquets of flowers between the rich winter visitors’ decorated carriages developed into a prestigious show. Today, this event promotes the quality and large variety of Riviera flowers as some 90% of flowers used are produced locally.

With just one complete free day, other days visiting beautiful hill top villages both in France and Italy. We will also visit the stunning Rothschild Villa.
