Practical tips

Motoring time is far more than just the time you spend at the driving wheel, so ViaMichelin has innovated with a new service. For long trips you can now customise your routes and add in stop-offs, breaks and even over-night halts.

Travel routes

Between Nice and Menton the mountains plunge sharply down to the sea. Running along these heights are three famous routes: the Grande Corniche, the Moyenne Corniche and the Basse Corniche. The first affords the most stunning views, climbing to 1,476ft/450m. The second offers beautiful vistas along the shore; while the third provides access to the coastal resorts.
