Vallée de la Roya is a dramatic mountain valley located close to the French Riviera in southern France. The valley, which can be accessed from Nice by car in just over an hour, hugs the Italian border (you'll drive through Italy to get to it) and forms part of the Mercantour National Park region. Vallée de la Roya isn't just close to Italy; the region was occupied by Italy during WWII. It wasn't until 1947 that the region moved back under French territory, and it remains French land to this day. Follow the valley from south to north, and you'll arrive at Tende, a small town perched on the hillside and a popular day trip location for those visiting the likes of Monaco, Menton, and Nice. Tende boasts a charming Old Town home to medieval houses, cobblestoned streets, and 14th-century churches. Other towns and communes of interest in the Vallee de la Roya include L'Escarene, Sospel, Breil Sur Roya, Fontan, and Storage. The latter is famed for its medieval architecture and spectacular mountain walking trails.
