WHO HASN’T HEARD OF THE GRAND CORNICHE?
Have you heard of the Grande Corniche, this high road perched at 500 meters altitude which connects Nice to the Italian border?
Doubtless you have if you’re a discerning movie buff, car enthusiast or fan of bikes. Here every year on this ribbon of bitumen suspended between the sky and sea the most coveted of the stages of the Paris-Nice race is held. It’s also where journalists from around the world, enjoying an unusually pure landscape, intense light and a breathtaking panorama, come to try out, photograph, and film car manufacturers’ newest models.
