Ferrari's 70th anniversary, legendary racing cars, extravagant prototypes and a vintage motorbike exhibition are all on the agenda at the Rétromobile auto show which will open its doors in Paris on February 8..

Test Drive

This year's West Coast automotive extravaganza was all about SUVs, despite Mercedes-Benz's best attempts to steal the limelight with a $350,000+ luxury convertible.

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.
