Menton : a marvel of festival!

July 29th/ August 13th, 2022

There is hardly any more beautiful summer festival place than that of Menton. Perched above the sea, dominated by the facade and the belfry of a baroque church marvel, protected by the age-old sword of the statue of Saint-Michel and covered by the starry sky, the festival has been welcoming for seventy years the greatest classical artists in the world. Created by André Böröcz, directed by Paul-Emmanuel Thomas, the Menton Festival is one of the oldest and most prestigious in Europe.

Presentation of the city

Nestled at the foot of a mountain amphitheater, nature is here preserved: everything is softness, calm and beauty.

In this cocoon open on the Mediterranean, with Ligurian and Monegasque influences, this piece of land is at the confluence of Western and Eastern cultures. Here, more than elsewhere, we cultivate this Mediterranean identity and this art of living.

In these postcard landscapes, there is unparalleled serenity and an incomparable sense of security, conducive to conviviality, exchange and well-being.

City of Arts, pampered by nature in all seasons, one can enjoy both a sovereign sea and a nearby sunny mountain. This balance between all the elements does not leave indifferent ... Better, it encourages to return, because it is here, where everything starts ...
