The drive starts in the picturesque town Vence situated in Alpes-Maritimes. First head up in the mountains to Col de Vence, a bikers favourite in the area. This 19.3 km pass has a height of only 963m at the top but should not be underestimated as a driving experience - there are some very enjoyable corners on this stretch of road.
From Col de Vence the road continues through Gréolières, from where you will take an upright turn to one of our favourite roads in the Alpes-Maritimes, Route de Gentelly (D2). This road is as close to picture perfection as a road can get. Enjoy landscapes framed by natural high rock formations and arches. The wooden fences follow the lines of a very twisty road that surprises you with a new picture perfect setting behind nearly every corner. When you stop for a rest at one of the vantage points, with incredible views over a deep green mountain valley, you almost feel like you are on the top of the world.
And with a nice car parked next to you, that just interrupted the quiet tranquility of the valley with its roaring supercar sounds echoing in the mountains, you would struggle to think of a better way to spend the day.
