"It just goes up" Roquebrune-Cap-Martin by mikesch
Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 46 photos
This town is actually two towns grown together.
Roquebrune stems from medieval time and is situated on a steep hill.
The rest of the town lies below and all along the coast. Mostly resorts, condominums from the look of it.
Roquebrune itself is a must-see as the houses are very old and stand close together. Looks like nothing much has changed from medieval times.
The streets are so narrow that you can only access the town center on foot.
Cap Martin is a peninsula extending into the sea. Very picturesk and quiet.
I've never tried swimming here, I think I saw a beach somewhere. But as the whole town is very steeply inclined, Menton to the east would be a better choice for that.
What I loved most was that the train station is close to sea level and there are stairs going up to roquebrune and it's castle.
- Pros:Lots of views, real old, castle
- In a nutshell:Atop a mountain it is easy to see far
