    You can park at the old border buildings in menton, usually loads there so pretty safe and if you get there early enough you can also park undercover

    They might not have wifi all the time if travelling, or maybe driving?

    It's good manners nevertheless to at least "like" the post if it was helpful. In this case the answer was only 3/4 hour after the original request.

    Well, if the OP does come back here I would just like to say the two grumpies above are not typical of the rest of us! Some of us actually try to say nice things to each other. :D:D:D

    OP has now been back online (Tues) to update their blog & change their avatar!
    I suspect from a quick glance at their blog, they decided against Monaco so quite simply never revisited their thread to see if anyone had responded
    But I agree that it is poor - especially when one asks a direct or specific question, not to acknowledge any answers even if you no longer want to know.

    Never mind it's good information that I appreciate and I am sure others will to, though a like is nice when someone has put effort into their reply. [​IMG]

    Even if they don't need the info, great for us, thanks as we're off the France on 14th June and Monaco is one of the places we will be visiting. So I'll thank you on behalf of the ignorant one!

    If you do park there, it's quite a short train ride to ventimiglia in Italy, reputably one of the largest markets in Europe on a Friday very nice if you are into such things right at the side of the sea, fantastic atmosphere acres of it, admitted loads the same but we have been a few times and never tire of it.

    Doesn't really worry me, and I have had a lot of you grateful people more than made up for him, but he must surly had a look for a reply, but looking at his other posts he has done it before, just wants to push his blog , I think(n)

    This is a great forum, thanks for the info re Menton and the Itailian Market town. We are currently in Salon De Provence and heading along the coast of the French Riviera over the next two weeks. Any more info on places to stay or visit would be greatly received.
    On our list at present are Martigues, Aix en Provence, (possibly St-Mandrier-Sur-Mer and Toulon), St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco and Monte Carlo. All other suggestions appreciated

    Plus 1 for the Italian market. There's the usual array of knock off copy designer bags etc but the food side - especially the cheese - is fabulous.

    You can buy a massive chunk of 36 month aged Parmesan for about €35. By massive chunk I mean about a kilo. They'll vacuum wrap it.

    We then carve a lump off it to use and vac pac the remainder, lasts ages.

    Tastes much nicer and far cheaper than UK supermarket stuff(y)

    We just stopped on a site in Latte. Bit busy, and tight. Owner took us to the train station, past the Italy/French border. The border was very busy with the French checking every one coming in. When we boarded the train, there were police everywhere, stopping the train while they searched every bit of it.
    They took about 4 people off and took them away.
    Monaco was boiling that day, but a beer and a glass of fizz in the Cafe Paris out side the casino made us feel loads better. But at €30 for the round, they had to drag me from my seat. A few nice cars to watch though.
    Then back on the train, campsite owner picking us up from station again and a few beers in his bar;)
