Escape from the Cote d'Azur jetset by driving the scenic Route de Thorenc like James Bond did in Goldeneye. Located in the heart of the Alpes-Maritimes region this scenic drive is not without a surprise, listed as one of the most stunning roads in the world.

Kick off your journey in Vence, 20 km outside of Nice. Head for the awe-inspiring Col de Vence and prepare for some panoramic views and hairpin bends in the spectacular mountains. The cute village of Gréolières serves as a perfect place for a coffee break to take a rest from the zig-zagging roads. Continue for the most sensational stretch of the road trip with iconic 'balcony' roads and unusual rocky arches. The tiny ski village Gréolières les Neiges indicates that you are halfway there: here you turn around to do this drive all over again hence in the other direction.

This short but exceptional daytrip in the French Riviera can't be missed.
