This is one good road into the Alps from the coast around Nice, avoiding major valley-bottom roads. Its a big climb from either end but once you're up, you're up, and the flat road continues like this for about 20km, with excellent views south all the way. |
It peaks at about 1150m, at the village of Ascros near the western end.
