French Riviera & Monte Carlo - 5 Days
European Driving Holiday in the Cote d'Azur & Provence
When it comes to sunshine destinations, they don’t come more exclusive than the Cote D`Azur.
However, what is often overlooked is the region is also on the doorstep of some of the greatest driving roads in Europe, the Alps Maritimes. These mountains, that run directly down to the Med, offer a combination of breathtaking hilltop villages (many ranked amongst the most scenic in France such as Gourdon, Vence and Moustiers Sainte Marie) with an amazing variety of drives, ranging from the tight and twisty mountain cols, to the sweeping Route Napoleon through Parc Verdon. Combine this with the small villages and vineyards of southern Provence and you have the perfect driving getaway.
This four nights break starts in the seaside resort of Cannes, before touring up into the beautiful Alps Maritimes, then spending an evening in Provence. You will tour through the stunning National Parc Verdon, drive along the Gorges Verdon, before heading along Route Napoleon, and an evening in the hilltop village of Vence. The final tour through the Alps Maritimes, takes you over the famous Col Turini, and into Monte Carlo for a final evening.
