the world's most spectacular roads

Highest roads of Europe

A signpost at the foot Col de la Bonette makes the claim "Col de la Bonette - Restefond, 2.802 m above sea level, the highest road in Europe". But this claim is incorrect for several reasons.

The two kilometre long teardrop shaped loop around the Cime de la Bonette peak (2.860m) from either side of the pass is one of the highest paved through route in the Alps, and in France. But there are more road passes whose altitudes are higher in Europe:
