This motorcycle tour is amazing, due to the variety of landscapes and roads, particularly "pleasant" at times, challenging in others, but to live in harmony with the surrounding environment, which allows you to enjoy the streets, the smells, the food and to immerse yourself in the fabulous scenery
We start from the Piedmont region, rich in culture and history, but probably more famous for its excellent cuisine, white truffle and above all its fine wines.In recent years, the viticultural landscape has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is a marvel to visit riding a motorcycle, with its scenery to be photographed without forgetting the pleasure of good food. After the overnight stay in the splendid Alba, we will continue in the direction of the Mercantur National Park, we enter France, to travel along some of the most beautiful scenic roads in the world, such as the Col de Turini and the Gorges du Verdon, the “Grand Canyon of Europe ". Wonderful curves and numerous natural tunnels lead us south, out of the mountains towards the French Riviera and one of its pearls, Nice. Return to Italy to the picturesque villages of the Cinque Terre, the "Paradise of the sea". The ride is spectacular and deserves further study, if you want you can choose to stay in Nice, having time to explore Monaco, Cannes, Saint Tropez or simply laze like the VIPs who periodically crowd it during the year: the "Côte d'Azur" , one of the most famous stretches of coast in Europe. The same goes for the Cinque Terre, UNESCO World Heritage. In the end you will not be able to love wandering free in this extraordinary scenery of hills, mountains and sea, all under a blue sky. Have a nice trip!
