Menton / Riviera Française

Overview

The French Riviera Urban Community encompasses 10 communes around Menton, Sospel, La Turbie, Beausoleil, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Its scope extends down to the sparkling shores of the Mediterranean and up in the peaks of the Massif du Mercantour, brushing on Italy and the Principality of Monaco.

Areas of excellence

The lemon industry in Menton has gradually acquired an internationally-recognised reputation thanks to its lemon festival. The Menton lemon is soon to be granted the extremely rare IGP label (Protected Geographical Indication).

Famed for the healing qualities of its citrus fruits and for its highly-praised Mediterranean diet, the Menton basin region has been a favourite holidaying spot with visitors from across Europe since the 19th century, and thus chose to focus on a Health/Nutrition/Well-being specialisation in one of the Côte d’Azur’s most dynamic sectors.
