Menton has many treasures that you can take the time to discover during your stay at the Hotel Villa Genesis. For a charming and relaxing way to enjoy a first glimpse of these delights, we recommend that our guests take a ride on the Petit Train de Menton...
The Petit Train de Menton is a must
Close to the Italian border, on the French Riviera, the coastal town of Menton is a pearl suspended above the waters of the Mediterranean and embraced by a magnificent arc of mountains. From its old harbour to the beaches and picturesque coast road, its gardens and its magnificent old centre, Menton boasts a wealth of treasures. Get a first impression of the town by taking a ride aboard the Petit Train de Menton, courtesy of the Office of Tourism. There’s no need to worry about traffic. You’ll travel the streets of the town at a sedate pace that allows you the time to see plenty of iconic sites while enjoying the fresh air and the fragrance of lemon and laurel...
Your ride on the Petit Train
The Petit Train de Menton departs from and returns to the Esplanade Francis Palmero, near the Jean Cocteau Museum. It will take you about five minutes to get there by car from your Hotel Villa Genesis. Simply take your seat on board and the 45-minute tour will start at the old centre with the Bastion, the Basilique Saint-Michel-Archange and the Porte Saint-Julien before continuing to the seaside and the beaches. Finally, amidst glorious greenery and in the shade of palm trees you’ll climb towards the coast road from where you can enjoy exceptional views of the entire bay. True enchantment!
Succumb to the magic of Menton by boarding the Petit Train! The concierge service of your Hotel Villa Genesis will give you all the necessary information and make your reservations.
