This is probably the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen. The loveliest of resting places for some famous personages, too. It's worth the hike up the steep hill! Will return, surely.

We walked along the top road looking down on Menton. Well cared for (some more refurbishment work going on currently) with, as you might expect a peaceful atmosphere. Looking back up to the mountains you can see the other cemetery. It was surprisingly enjoyable.

This requires a lot of walking up steep hills but it is very interesting. There is a French war grave section and the English artist Aubrey Beardsley is buried here. Fabulous views.
