Me and a couple of mates, (and partners), are hoping for some 'top down' fun down to Monte Carlo and back in summer.

We are thinking of taking in Le Mans 24hr, but after that we have no real idea where to go apart form wanting nice roads and views.

Any thoughts/experiences???

Calais to Orleans via Paris for Le Mans.

Le Mans to Millau, overnight stop then over & under the viaduct heading for the South of France.

Pics up the Motorway next to the Med it takes you there.

Stop at Antibes (lovely), Menton for the Col d Turini & Monaco for a couple of laps.

Enjoy:)

Stay off the motorway on the last leg, it's rubbish.

Take the old coast road:

St Raphaël, France to Boulevard Albert 1er - Google Maps
Seconded :thumbs:

I know a few, the D2205 From Nice to St Etienne De Tinee is a wonderful drivers road if you get the chance, it's not overly challenging but i found that was it's real charm and it was nice and quiet that time of year. IRRC takes around 30mins from nice to get on the good bit which then lasts about 1 hour or so to De Tinee

There's a cable car ride in De Tinee with bar/cafe half way up the mountain, which is a good spot to take in some scenery and refresh yourself for the descent back into Nice. It was one of the roads me and mrs dg took on our honeymoon and i really liked it :)

I'll try and put a link of some footage from the cabin if i can work out how

Easy Jet to Nice, collect hire car, thrash it through various tunnels and high level motorway sections forgetting to put your headlights on and to take your sun glasses off. Arrive, sit in traffic for ages before parking on level 90 in the car park which is about a mile underground, Sit in a cafe over looking the casino, pay the surly waiter 9 euro for a bottle of lager, sorted. :lol:

N85, the "Route Napoleon", to Cannes is a good driving road if you can manage to do it off-season.

I did Dunkerque to Dijon, then Dijon across the tunnel de Frejus into Italy, onto Briancon (where I had the best pizza EVER), then a massive and quite amazing drive through the Alps, down to Antibes and hit the local Casino/Club (at a cost of 10 euros a drink....urghhh!)

Seconded :thumbs: we've taken that after driving over the Gorges du Verdon, joined at Castellane just after the N85 turns into the D4085, think we were amongst cars who knew the road well becuase the pace was fairly quick :D.

the roads down that way are fantastic, I would love to go back one day
