Date Tour-Area Offer Avenue Registration

Winding roads will not be neglected. It is also important for us to show you some of the beauty and the cultural heritage of the areas of southern France, Piedmont and Ligura, through which we drive. We appreciate and enjoy the culinary specialties of the local French and Italian cuisine and vineyards, which we are pleased to share it with you.

When does it start?

Classic Motorcycle Tour Arrival Departure
Maritime Alps - Liguria 12 Mai 2018 19 Mai 2018

 

We will meet on Saturday at the border of the Mercantour National Park, in the picturesque town La Brigue (Briga), at the foot of the Col de Tende. During eight days, we will enjoy the sunny side of life. When it is time to go our separate ways, we do it with many great and lasting memories.

Where are we going to travel?

Accommodation

We will stay at the Hotel Le Mirval for the whole trip. This hotel was opened in 1893 and is located next to the entrance to the town of La Brigue (La Briga), Alpes Maritimes, France. The house was built in the Art Nouveau style and was renovated a few years ago. It is considered as one of the best hotels in the Roya Valley. Their kitchen provides rich traditional menus that offer an overview of the specialties of the French Provence, the Riviera and the Italian Piedmont. There is also a cycling park near the hotel while climbers can test their skills on the nearby limestone cliffs. If you like it calmer, then you should take a rest in one of the village's many inns.

The community of Briga belonged to Italy up to 1947. Today many places still retain that Italian feeling. The medieval architecture of the town allows visitors to immerse themselves in times long past. The nearby Sanctuary Notre-Dame des Fontaines, with its rich frescoes, is considered the Sistine Chapel of the Alps. The nearby Vallée de la Merveille is famous for its prehistoric rock engravings.

Motorcycle trips

Touring on our vintage or classic motorcycles lead us to the Italian areas of Piedmont and Liguria as well as the French Maritime Alps. Every day is intended to give new impressions, both on and off the twisty roads. You will usually experience early summer warmth near the coast of the French and Italian Riviera, but do not be surprised if a cooler wind is blowing in the upper mountains of the Maritime Alps!

We ride our motorcycles about 200 kilometres a day. This typically includes five hours of riding time. For people who wish to relax, we also offer various relaxation programs at midweek such as bathing in the see or sightseeing. We always take a break in the morning for elevenses and a tea break in the afternoon. Lunchtime will be spent every day in a new French or Italian restaurant.
