Parking in Menton in September

Have booked an apartment for 1 week, 15 - 22 September and planning to rent a car from Nice Airport. Weekly rental for small car equals return taxi costs because my wife will struggle on public transport. Question is what sort of parking charges would be in force during September and can one purchase weekly tickets. The apartment is on the Rue Longue.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

It is a few years since we stayed in Menton, so things may have changed, but on the attached map, just before the marina and opposite the Hotel Napoleon is a large parking lot that was definitely free a few years ago. There is a supermarket nearby so I guess it is parking for that, the marina and the beach.

It is a level walk along the boardwalk to town. Don't neglect the area below the boardwalk where there are entrances to the private beaches, but you don't have to enter the beach to use the restaurants there. We had a very memorable meal in a place with an open roof, with the wavelets lapping nearby.

The car park suggested by Lynn B is still there and remains free. Your nearest pay car park is this q-park.fr/language/…parking-hotel-de-ville

There is nearer pay-and-display street parking, if you can find a place, and this is free overnight. Menton's parking ticket machines automatically exclude free periods at lunchtime and overnight, so you can pay for morning costs the night before. If you can find a place!

There are also nearby pay-and-display car parks around the old harbour, and between the covered market area and the sea-front. These will definitely have spaces overnight.

Thank you both for taking the trouble to reply, both replies are extremely helpful.

Armed with this information I think car hire for the week and free parking outways two taxi journeys and public transport.
