    Fantastic museum. Great exhibits. Sadly, it's mostly in French but it's still worth 5 stars. October 2022.

    Like so many perched villages in the Alpes-Maritimes, the views from upper parts of this village are wonderful and worth the steep climb. Walking along narrow, cobbled streets, through vaulted passageways and past historic door lintels and fountains I came to the spectacular Eglise Collegiale de Notre Dame de l’Assomption. Both the exterior and the interior are worthy of closer inspection. Unfortunately, neither of the nearby chapels were open, despite the assurance in the brochure provided by the tourist office that they should be.
    Note – if you need refreshments, you can’t get any in the old town. You must visit a bar or restaurant in the newer part of town near the tourist office and museum.

    This mountain road features dozens of hard switchback turns, coming and going, between the Ligurian coast of Italy (Italian Riviera or Riviera del Fiore) and the Piedmont plateau (near Cuneo). The scenery is beautiful, although a bit difficult to enjoy if you are the one doing the driving! Popular also with motorcyclists, bicyclists (this route is used in mountain bike races), and hikers. Beware of closures in the winter, and for road construction in summer. It seemed to have suffered some damage near the summit on the Ligurian side when we went through and there were single-lane closures at places. The long tunnel near the summit is really a scary thing - once open to unrestricted two-way traffic! There is a scenic train ride through here (Nice-Breil-Cuneo, or Ventimiglia-Breil-Cuneo) that is quite breathtaking. This is one of the oldest, most historic routes from the coast to Italy's northern interior, dating back to the Phoenicians and Romans.

    The exterior of this huge church is beautifully decorated. It can be seen from quite a distance away, especially the bell tower.
    Inside, although it’s dark, it’s still beautiful. The paintwork and the artwork, the altars and the sculptures – all of it worth a visit.

    This small museum is 100% worth the visit, even if you’re not a history nerd as I am. The Italian Army bunker has been painstakingly restored to the finest details by the volunteers of the ASVA association.

    You will experience what army life was really like, with a surprising @time capsule” effect. The guided tours are compulsory but nice and short - our guide, the young Lorenzo, was passionate and clear.

    Guided tours are available in French, Italian and (provably) English.

    At the very beginning of the path, there's a warning sign, "No under 12 allowed on Via Ferrata". Only by looking at it from the bottom, I was filled with awe. Such a restriction seemed even too generous, considering the verticality of the trail, the swingbridge from top to top, the extreme care required on very tricky passages. Nevertheless, it must be an unparalleled experience, if only you are full of enthusiasm and youthful energy!

    Just near the Monument aux Morts and the weekly market, this little church is very sweet. Behind the altar, instead of a wall there is a full window, with a view out over the beautiful mountains – stunning. Side chapels and walls are decorated with paintings in something like a naïf style, and incorporate local costumes, scenes and activities. Worth a quick visit
