3 CLIFF-ROADS - NATURAL PARKS - FORTRESSES - PANORAMAS 360° - ALPS - EZE OR VILLEFRANCHE
The greatest E-Bike Tour to follow the most exceptional routes which reveals the most beautiful panoramas of the French Riviera from the
closest hills, from the Sea to the Alps, from Low to Grand Corniche. A vertiginous ascent from sea to sky unveiling a brightful green coast & its natural parks rich
of monuments, ruins & fortresses. You will appreciate Nice & the French Riviera like never, under unexpected facets, passing from fortresses to natural parks, from
ruins to monuments, and marveling after every corner belvederes of unmatched beauty embracing faraway horizons: from Italian Riviera to the gulf of Saint Tropez.
We will start our E-Bike tour with a ride around the Port Lympia to contemplate its fishermen's typical and colorful boats, passing nearby a prehistoric cave, rich of archaeological finds. Then, we will climb the Cap de Nice passing between the most prestigious and fanciful villas, jewels of the Belle Époque period. We will cross one of the emblematic hills of Nice with plunging and very spectacular views of the Baie des Anges and Cape Ferrat, then a Natural Park following pathways in the middle of Mediterranean forests and we will bypass several military forts from the end of the 19th century then a renaissance fortress from the 16th century, part of the strategic defense system of the Duchy of Savoy. A great moment to take advantage of some panoramic viewpoints.
Our ascent is not over! And we will climb again and again to reach the summit of the day at 700 meters above sea level, another emblematic military fort, a dirt road winding between blocks and limestone tunnels, with a unique orientation table, giving vertigo at 360° revealing at a glance the highest peaks of the Alps and the entire extent of the Côte d'Azur.
Then, the delivery of the freewheel descent, just as beautiful! And relaxing... On the way back, we can stop to visit the medieval village of Eze hanging on an eagle's nest, perched 400 meters above the sea and its exotic garden (+6€ per person). A treat for the eyes, one of the musts of the Côte d'Azur! (Given that the circuit is quite sporty, even by electric bike, the guide reserves the right to modify the itinerary (especially with the hot weather) and prefer to Eze the visit of the charming fisherman village of Villefranche-sur-Mer , its colorful old town, its Cocteau Chapel and its sandy beach with turquoise reflections (and take a dip into the clear water, why not ?)...
