Forts on the 
French Riviera

Because of rising tension between France and Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a series of forts were built along high mountain ridges (Maginot line).

Offering breathtaking panoramas over mountain sites in the heart of the National Mercantour Park, two itineraries, Circuit de l’Authion and Route de l’Amitié, provide opportunities to explore the defensive structures crowning many strategic sites in our region.

An independent State on the French Riviera, Monaco is closely tied with the Grimaldi dynasty that still reigns there. Tourists love to flock to the Principality and particularly Le Rocher, its historic roots.
