This is one of the highest roads in the Alps and is a must see just for that reason. The road really becomes interesting as it rises to 2200m odd.
Just a small taste of 2300m of altitude...Of course if your appetite grows, continue towards Barcelonnette and Guillaumes, to add to your collection the col of Izoard, Vars, Cayolle; all giants over 2000m with beautiful roads and breathtaking scenaries over the Alps. Perfect in summer to find relief from the heat, with temperatures ranging from 20 to 25Ã‚°C. The whole ride to Guillaumes is about 160Km
