La Route Bleue RN7
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 is an exact reproduction of the original, located in Lapalisse since the early 30’s.
A reproduction of the highest quality, fully hand-made and hand-painted, and of course with the authentic font! 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.
