Menton (Mentone in Italian) is a small coastal town, situated between Monaco and the Italian Riviera, in the Alpes-Maritimes department of France. It is both elegant and picturesque and has earned itself the nickname la perle de la France ('the pearl of France').

The town developed as a tourist attraction from the 19th century onwards and quickly became a favourite with the British and Russian aristocracy.
