La Route de la Bonette

Tourist routes in Saint-Étienne-de-Tinée

  • The "Col de la Bonette" road is the shortest way from the Côte d'Azur to the southern Alps (there are 150 km between Nice and Ubaye Valley). It is also the highest road in Europe, at an altitude of 2802 meters.

  • The itinerary is littered with beautiful things to discover, and Mercantour National Park is full of surprises thanks to preservation policies. On the way from Nice you can see row after row orange trees, olive trees, chestnut trees and pine trees. On the northern face, Ubaye Valley opens its arms to Jausiers and Barcelonnette contrasting with the Tinée River. The "Col de la Bonette" is the link between Italy and "Haute Durance" and lake "Serre Ponçon".
