Col de Turini
|Col de Turini|
|Elevation||1,607 m (5,272 ft)|
It is famous for a stage of the Monte Carlo Rally which is held on the tight road with its many hairpin turns. Until a few years ago, the Col de Turini was also driven at night, with thousands of fans watching the "night of the long knives" as it was called, due to the strong high beam lights cutting through the night.
This pass was featured in the first episode of Top Gear series 10 when the presenters went in search of the greatest driving road in the world.
