Trip at a glance
The South of France or Cote d’Azur is the nec plus ultra of jetset destinations. The region offers some of the greatest driving roads in Europe - The Alpes Maritimes. Mountains run directly down to the Mediterranean and offer an amazing variety of drives, from the tight and twisty mountain passes to the sweeping Route Napoleon that takes you up into the Verdon National Park. An amazing driving experience for all car enthusiasts.
