The three ancient roads or "Corniche" that hug the rugged
mountainside connecting Monaco with France are the:
- Lower Corniche (Basse Corniche)
- Middle Corniche (Moyenne Corniche)
- Upper Corniche (Grande Corniche)
The Basse Corniche passes through the picturesque fishing town of
Villefranche and small towns such as Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu-sur-Mer.
The Three Corniches leading to Monaco
The Moyenne Corniche rises to an elevation of around 1,200 feet and
features spectacular views of the Mediterranean towns. The "Eagles
Nest" is located on the Moyenne Cornice.
The Grand Corniche passes through the mountainside town of Roquebrune.
