Lemon festival in Menton
Not in Nice but very close and of great fame:
The Lemon Festival in Menton is a kind of carnival whose floats are entirely decorated with citrus fruits.
It takes place from February 10 to 26, 2023.
30 minutes by train (4.80€). Menton train station is a 3-minute walk from the Lemon Festival.
The Iron man is an international sporting event, a very long distance triathlon. The entire event covers 226 kilometers or 140.6 miles. It is therefore an unusual competition, shall I say superhuman? The participants cumulate a swimming event of 3.8 km, followed by a cycling race of 180.2 km or 111.97 miles and finally, a marathon, so 42.195km or 26 miles and 385 yards of running.
The Iron Man takes place between the sea and the mountains, in a magnificent landscape that, unfortunately, the participants do not really have the opportunity to admire.
