There are approximately 600 km by comfortable highways, and almost no tolls on the road. During the afternoon you can enjoy visiting renowned museums in Barcelona.

After visiting Barcelona, the trip to Nice starts, our next stop. The French Riviera is impressive for its many beaches and the views from the coastal highway. We can go to well-known coastal cities such as Perpignan, Montpellier, Marseille and Cannes. When you stop at each of them, you will breath a festive, summery environment, typical of cities historically known as vacation spots. The journey is long, about 670 km, but very pleasant for the convenience of the highway, the views of the Mediterranean Sea and the endless tunnels carved into the French Alps.
Arriving in Nice you will see how it is a city that has grown around its promenade, a place to have a drink, watch the beach or have a walk through the most beautiful and emblematic area of Nice.

Leaving Nice, we can stop in Monaco and enjoy driving through its street circuit, like the famous tunnel of the bay and the harbor area. After our short visit to Monaco, we head to the near San Remo, and go straight to Milan. It is better not to stop there because Milan has a lot to do, and it's worth a visit itself at another time. A few kilometres after Milan, we find the idyllic mountain village of Bergamo, our stop to regain strength.
