Menton Lemon Festival
Menton Lemon Festival and Nice Carnival
There's nothing quite like the sights and sounds, the excitement and pure eccentricity of a Mediterranean festival and this tour features not only the Menton Lemon Festival but also Nice Carnival. To make this tour extra special we have chosen a stylish Italian hotel over the border in the picturesque, Ligurian resort town of Diano Marina on the Ponentina Riviera, often known as the 'Riviera dei Fiori' (Coast of Flowers).
