2.Col de Vence, France

Total 911 - - Arctic Circle Road Trip Part Two -

Length: 32 miles

Driver en­gage­ment: views: the south of France is a hot­bed for sen­sa­tional driv­ing roads – so long as you can stom­ach a heavy pres­ence of cy­clists, car­a­vans and wait­ing po­lice in sum­mer. head there in the off sea­son and you’ll have largely de­serted yet no less spec­tac­u­lar roads to en­joy, the best of which is the Col de vence. the D2 climbs to an el­e­va­tion of 982 me­tres, with truly ma­jes­tic views on of­fer all the way up. the first sec­tion is faster, its hair­pins much wider, al­low­ing you room to get the 911’s tail out, though at the top the route be­comes sig­nif­i­cantly nar­rower, and with sheer drops to the side, there’s no mar­gin for er­ror.
