Cycling in France - Provence & the Côte d'Azur (Chapter)
This is the Provence & the Côte d'Azur chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling France guidebook.
There's something in Provence and the Côte d'Azur for every cyclist, from the mountain goat to the casual day-tripper. Tiny villages linked by deserted mountain roads, chic coastal cities, mythical Mont Ventoux and the windswept Camargue are some of the region's two-wheelin' drawcards.
- come to grips with the immensity of the ages-old Gorges du Verdon
- transport and accommodation
- gaze seawards from the vertiginous heights of La Turbie on the Grande Corniche
- check out the region's quaint 'perched villages' from different angles
Coverage includes: History, Environment, Climate, Alpes Maritimes, Plateau de Caussols, Cotes d'Azur Hinterland, Mediterranean Promenade, Grand Canyon du Verdon, The Luberon & Mont Ventoux, Towns & Facilities.
