Half day in Menton - Bus stops & things to do.

I am thinking of visiting Menton for half a day in early September by bus.

According to the bus timetable there is three bus stops in Menton, Casino, Bioves & Menton Gare Routiere. Which is the best stop to see the main attractions?

Could I visit the old town and the Val Rahmeh gardens in half a day? Are these places close by? Do you have any additional suggestions?

Thanks for your help. Look forward to your replies.

Perilizia, where are you? :-)

those three stops are at the bottom , middle and higher up on the main Avenue de Verdun which runs through Menton down to the ocean (where the Casino is). From the Casino stop you can walk east along avenue felix faure which becomes a pedestrian mall and leads to the old town where there is lots to see, plus any amount of restaurants and shopping. the new Jean Cocteau museum is a few blocks south, on the waterfront.

The Val Rahmeh gardens are a nice place for a picnic but otherwise not a big deal -- there are better ones in Menton. Reviews at tripadvisor.ca/ShowUserReviews-g187231-d3175… . to reach them just keep heading east, and turn up avenue saint-jacques -- about 20 minutes from the city centre.

There is a list of Things to Do on TA at tripadvisor.ca/Attractions-g187231-Activitie… ... i like Carnoles Palace Art Museum.
