La Turbie: a historical and panoramic city

Overlooking the Mediterranean coast and Monaco, La Turbie is a charming village rich with history.

This promontory, situated at 500 meters above sea level, allows us to enjoy the remarkable panoramas of the French Riviera, making it a real balcony suspended above Monaco.
