I did it in 1967, in two days from Chamonix to Nice, with an overnight in Briançon. There are about 5 high passes, and each one is different. There were a lot of switchbacks and few if any guardrails. By now the roads may have been upgraded and widened.

viamichelin.com will give an estimated driving time, excluding stops for food, fuel, stretching the legs and admiring the scenery.
