... which was part of the tour. Somehow the waiter tried to charge us €32 for two beers! Thankfully Rubin sorted it and they were free. But that's not the end of being charged, the casino has implemented a cover charge just to go in at €10 a person, so we would already be €20 down without even placing a bet. We decided not to go in and just hang outside and enjoy the majestic buildings all lit up. There were also ...

I woke up early, not wanting to disturb anyone I packed my bag in the semi darkness.
Others were awake so I had a cup of tea and then got my gear together for the taxi at 8 o clock.
Everyone walked me down to the main gate (to make sure I left the premises Ha) We went through the handshakes and hugs and I told them I was big enough to wait for ...

at, but not much else. Walking through the old quarter proved to be much
more interesting. Narrow cobbled lane ways lined with shops selling
everything from clothing, spices (the aroma is intoxicating), meats,
fruit and vegetables, shoes, crafts, etc etc. As well, there are
numerous small cafes and bars scattered throughout the area. A
fascinating place to wander around in.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Edward's Menton
This is a great location at a great price. The rooftop terrace and garden dining area add to the charm of this place. It is in easy walking distance to the sea front and the town of Menton. The rooms themselves are simply furnished and if you shut all the shutters on the windows you can cut out the outside noise and light. In the hot weather though that could be a problem as there is a lot of street noise in the area and it does get hot with everything shut up! The price is great and it does include a lovely continental breakfast. The owners/managers are very hospitable and are happy to help out with tea/coffee trays for you to take up to your room and even bottles of water. Ask about the walking trip to Monaco, sounds like a great sea front journey, unfortunately we couldn't take it.
