Driving The Grande Corniche

After Eze we got back on the Moyenne Corniche and followed the road all the way to Menton on the Italian border. It looked like a pretty little place but we opted not to stop again quite so soon and sought out signs for the Grande Corniche. Not so easy to find. After a false…
