SCENIC ROUTES SUGGESTIONS

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 30 day trip through Spain, France and Italy on a motorcycle (September). We have the skeleton of our itinerary planned, but need some help on the finer details.
Looking for suggestions of the most scenic routes, as we would only like to use the only Motorways when absolutely necessary:

Looking for scenic route suggestions and must-see attractions on the following areas:

We arrive in France from Barcelona via Andorra and sleep in Carcassone. The next day we travel to the Tarn Gorge to Saine Enimie via Millau.

From St Enimie we would like to pass through the Cevennes to sightsee and eventually sleep over around the Adreche Gorge via the Les Vans area.

From the Adreche we will head into Provence for three or four days and will probably make our base in Gordes in order to see the sights around Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and St Remy. Stu Dudley's itinerary around the Villages in this area has definitely been a great help and inspiration. Thanks Stu.

From there we intend to spend 2 days in Nice/Cap Ferrat, but would like to get to the coast through the Alpes and definitely would like to see the Lake st Croix area.

From Nice we will do a day trip along the coastal roads before heading to Cinque Terre in Italy.

Any advice will be appreciated from yo , as we have not been to Europe before, so we are unfamiliar with the conditions and driving times.
