Enjoy a wonderful tour into the Sea-Alps, the final endings of the European Alps that fall right into the Mediterranean Sea between Nice and Menton forming magnificent bays and offering spectacular views.
The first stop of the tour will be in the beautiful hill-village of Eze. Plenty of narrow alleys wind their way up to the Exotic Garden on top of the village. This Saracen stronghold of the past has become one of the highlights of the French Riviera. You will enjoy this very special place with its very medieval atmosphere.
From Eze we will take the upper coastal road to La Turbie, where we will do a magnificent photo-stop. On clear days you will have a view on almost the entire French Riviera from Menton to the Esterel mountain range.
We then take the very panoramic and winding road through the mountains to another jewel of the region: St Agnès. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages of France and finds itself in a very strategic position high above the coast of Menton. St Agnes is right on the Maginot Line, a vast fortification of the inter-war-years right on the Italian/French border.
Our way back to the coast we will do a short panoramic drive through the Principality of Monaco and make a stop at the famous Casino square.
Or, if you prefer, we can also visit the very charming village of Roquebrune or Menton
Of course, this tour can be adapted to your personal wishes
