If you are visiting the French Riviera, make sure you go this fascinating market on the border of France and Italy. Located just half an hour from Menton, or about an hour from Nice, do yourself a favour and take the train to Ventimiglia and walk down to the weekly Friday market just five minutes from the train station.
They sell everything under the sun at very reasonable prices. I have picked up whie embroidered linen tablecloths, lovely gold guilted wine glasses, more shawls and. capes that i will admit to, and even large blocks of parmesan cheese.
It has a distinctive Italian feel, and you will be spoiled for choice of restaurants offering typical Italian fare.
All in all, a lovely day out.
