Access to the Roya Valley

2021 Road and Rail Links for the Roya Valley

Having been severely impacted by Storm Alex, the Roya Valley and its villages are now ready to welcome you this summer! Road and rail links have been developed to offer you the best possible experience.

Note: We recommend contacting the Menton, Riviera & Merveilles tourist information office prior to your visit to ensure you have the latest information.

Discover the Roya Valley

by train

Explore the Roya Valley in comfort by train. This historic cross-border line offers the chance to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the Roya landscape in complete tranquillity. In a matter of minutes, you can go from the city to the country and be in the mountains. The train passes through almost all the villages in the valley and you can stop off at any of the stations along the way.

Train & BusFREE FOR 2021

Following Storm Alex, the free train service between Nice and Tende will continue for the rest of the Summer 2021 season. This is a great opportunity to discover or revisit our stunning valley!

Discover the Roya Valley

by bus

Bus route No. 25 from Menton is an easy way to visit our valley and enjoy its spectacular scenery.
This beautiful rural route takes you along winding roads with a varying landscape, travelling from the coast to the mountains passing through olive groves. The bus is a great way to quickly get from one village to another.

Discover the Roya Valley

By road

The national route runs through the Roya Valley from Breil-sur-Roya to Tende, and can be joined at Vintimille and Menton. This route across typical mountainous terrain, was hit hard by Storm Alex last October. Extensive work has been underway for several months in order to fully repair the road as quickly as possible.

From Menton, you can go through Sospel via the Col de Brouis to reach Breil-sur-Roya and then on to Tende.

However, access is still limited in some places, so we recommend contacting the relevant tourist information offices prior to heading into the valley by car.

RD6204

The restriction of circulation on the RD6204 road has been lifted, but there are still many roadworks: it is therefore important to take into account in your organisation that you may be stopped at certain points for cranes, traffic lights, unloading of materials… So be prepared, and don’t hesitate to take a little extra time if you have a time schedule to keep.
