Les Gorges du Verdon Reviews
It does not matter where you stop, the view is stunning everywhere. There are some lakes that are so clear, you can see the bottom clearly! This is a must visit when you are in the south of France! more »
位於尼斯與阿維儂之間的威東峽谷是著名的自然景色景點。不是自駕遊的話，可以參加一天團，尼斯或阿維儂有不少的選擇。 話說如果駕駛技術不是太好的話，來峽谷要非常小心。這邊山路又窄又彎，路邊沒欄，山路對外就是懸崖，還要雙向行車，而且路上超多旅遊大巴。小心小心。 峽谷中部有一觀景點。有餐廳，洗手間，以及崖邊觀景台。 跟美國大峽谷相比感受完全不同。這邊沒有荒涼的感覺，反而生機盎然，流水斷崖相映成輝。站在崖畔，... more »The Canyon Valley, located between Nice and Shannon, is a famous natural view.

Standing on the banks of the cliff, feel the magnificent scenery of nature, is a single look at the photos completely can not feel. When the time is not too much, Shannon or Nice, near the tour, is definitely worth a day to Canyon Valley/Holy Cross Lake.

Most beautiful place. Narrow roads, but lovely views. Water is so clear.
