Twisty ride, but some of the best views in the Cote d'Azur. Stunning views of Monaco all the way to Italy.

Tiny and beautiful village in the « arrière-pays », the back country. A few shops with local products, cheese, jam, soap and quite a few nice and friendly restaurants. Try la taverne provençale, great family cuisine and a terrific view on the sea and the mountains.

The Alpes Trophy, the only remaining example of such triumphal architecture, was erected in the 1st century BC to honour Augustus Caesar’s victories against the tribes of the Alpes. This structure has been restored thanks to an American patron and it towers above the old Via Julia Augusta and the whole of the French Riviera from Esterel to the Italian coast. The monument features an exhibition of engravings, plaster cars, models, a video display and panoramic view.

I love to visit monuments and ruins when on vacation- so I convinced the family to stop in to see the Trophiee d'Auguste. First of all, Turbie is a wonderful village perched atop a mountain overlooking Monaco and the Mediterranean, secondly, the monument is very interesting (you can climb to the top) and third, there is an excellent museum that traces the history of the monument as well as the history of the reconstruction that was done. All in all, this was an excellent side trip during a great day on the Cote d'Azur.

Love love loved it here, we were in the area and thought we’d stop in, so pleased we did, the most stunning village with a great vibe, beautiful cobbled streets and a lovely feel. A great pottery shop and wood craft shop too, don’t miss it!
