The Route Napoléon
This legendary road is peppered with viewpoints and surrounded by superb landscapes.
One of the prettiest views can be enjoyed between Saint-Vallier-de-Thiey and Escragnolles.
Jardins de la Princesse Pauline
When visiting Grasse, Napoléon’s sister, Princess Pauline Borghèse, liked to stroll around this now-public park whence she enjoyed a vast panoramic view of the region, from the Tanneron hills in the west to the peaks of the Alps in the east.
Cabris, Place de l'Eglise
Surely one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the Pays de Grasse. Cabris is perched at an altitude of 1,804 feet (550 m) and this location boasts a sublime, jaw-dropping panoramic vista!
Grasse, Cours Honoré Cresp
From the city’s main plaza, gaze upon a panoramic vista over the southern section of the Pays de Grasse to the Bay of Cannes and a view of Grasse’s historic city center.
Grasse, Le Chêne de l’Empereur rest area
On March 2, 1815, Napoléon stopped at this site to lunch beneath an oak tree on the Roquevignon plateau north of Grasse. The Aire du Chêne de l’Empereur has a breathtaking view of the city of Grasse and the French Riviera and is rest and refreshment stop for the many visitors traveling the Route Napoléon.
Porte de Tracastel - Saint-Auban
A 30-minute walk from the village will take you to this striking ruin where you can drink in a beautiful panoramic view of the Préalpes d’Azur, the alpine foothills of the Riviera.
La Moulière (Caille) – Viewpoint indicator
A breathtaking view and colorful map perched just above the Moulière chairlift!
And if you want even more thrills, try one of the mountain’s zipline tours!
La clue des Mujouls
The village of Les Mujouls, with barely a dozen houses, is perched on a rocky outcrop and surrounded by pine forests and pristine nature. From the village, admire the superb panoramic view of Charamel Mountain (braver souls may wish to hike it) and the deep gorges known as clues.
Voie Romaine (Roman road) viewpoint Saint-Cézaire sur Siagne
This beautiful medieval village clinging to dizzying cliffs above the Siagne is well worth a visit for its view of the hills of the Massif des Maures and the Estérel.
