Sisteron is sometimes called the "Gateway to Provence" because it is in a narrow gap between two long mountain ridges.

The private tour to Chamonix, Sisteron and Napoleon road is definitely an off the beaten track trip that can be done in two ways:
"We booked four private tours and two private airport transfers. We enjoyed it a lot and were very satisfied. ... We’ve done many private tours before in different countries. This was certainly one of the best."
"It's the best trip I ever had, we stopped at every sight possible to see. The tour guides were very polite, they didnt rush us and they guided us all the way. I would recommend this to anyone in Nice for couple of days and want to get a look around the French Riviera. ... ."
