The Essential
Recommended
At an altitude of 1,326m, at the crossroads of five valleys and beneath the Montgenèvre Pass into Italy, Briançon attracts winter sports enthusiasts and hikers in summer, eager to admire the domain of Serre Chevalier and the Écrins National Park. Removed from this noise and bustle, Vauban's citadel, bristling with fortifications and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, retains the delightful allure of a medieval village with its maze of narrow streets and gardens.
