La Route Bleue Lyon/Moulins
De Route Nationale 7, La Route Bleue
The RN7…the queen among the old French roads…
In 1811 Napoleon Bonaparte had Route Impériale 8 built from Paris to Rome.
In 1824 it became Route Nationale 7. It starts in Paris and runs through Lyon
and Nice to Menton at the Italian border at a distance of 995 km.
France is the same as Paris and from the lively Région Parisienne the RN7 takes
the traveler to the glamourous Cote d’Azur, a favourite holiday destination
since time immemorial. It was also mentioned in the song by Charles Trenet in
1955, The Route Bleue.
This route has an aura of romance and nostalgic feelings. It could be the
association which the historic status as Route des vacances.
Every year the population of Lapalisse (Alier) re-enacts the traffic jams on the
RN7 in a play called Embouteillage.
Our panneau Route Bleue – Lyon / Moulins- is an exact reproduction of the original, located in Saint Martin d’Estreaux, Loire at the Route Nationale 7 since 1933.
The reproduction is, even as the original, made up of two tiles. A reproduction of the highest quality, fully hand-made and hand-painted, and of course with the authentic font which give this beautiful plaque its authentic look.
Even the back is a work of art.
This sign comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number and a luxury postcard with picture and description of the original.
