Fun markets in Ventimiglia although you need to watch for counterfeit label stuff. Still very good. There are very good quality Italian purses and gloves at half the prices in US----even at TJ Maxx!
There is a lovely restaurant called Ristaurante La Pergola at the entrance on the left. Mom and Pop place. The wife's lasagna and gnocchi are fantastic.
Menton is also wonderful. Our guide was terrific. She adjusted the trip when she learned we missed Monaco on another tour so she drove from above and down through Monte Carlo. Magnificent.
I must highly recommend Raphaelle Froment-Meurice as a guide. Red haired Parisian with a wonderful love of the Louvre and art history. She made our trip very special. I really appreciated her showing us earlier works and explaining the progression in expertise so we could fully appreciate the magnificent of the masterpieces. Napoleon's apartments was the bomb. Request this guide if you can----she is amazing!
