Italy is just round the corner from French Riviera and therefore we decided to make the best use of our schengen visa. We took a train and headed to the Italian town of Ventimiglia. It's just a small train ride away. From eating oysters to digging in pasta- we did that in one day and we were pretty kicked about it. The moment you cross the border, you will notice a stark difference between the French and the Italian culture. Just within a few miles, you see a difference in food, textures, flavours, language, people. We entered a bustling market selling local fruits, vegetables and flowers. The prices are generally lower than what you will find across the French border. Do find time to devour some sinful local risotto, spaghetti and pasta and end your meal with a heavenly tiramisu.
A hop and a skip away from Montpellier is St Guilhem, one of the most beautiful little villages in France. It’s popular so prepare to see a lot of tourists but it is gorgeous. You can quite comfortably just stroll around the village but for a little more adventure, pack your walking shoes (which I did not) and take a hike (which I did) up the big jutting hill to reach a monk’s chapel and take in the view of the village below. It’s also super handy to get to with a bus from Montpellier taking you right there.
