South Of France - Citrus Festival

February is a beautiful time to visit French Riviera. Blooming of mimosas, peak of the citrus season and warm temperatures (comparing to the rest of Europe) are good enough reasons to escape the reality.

But our actual reason endeavouring on this trip was to experience the fun of a Citrus Festival. That’s right - a celebration of the citrus harvest.

It is usually organised from mid February - mid March in a little town called Menton, just 40 minute train journey from Nice.
