The Rhône-Alpes region provides developed transport links. Rhône-Alpes road network links the major French urban centres to each other and connects the region to many European cities.
The motorway network is really extended in the Rhône-Alpes region. There are indeed 1326 km of motorways. With the exception of just a few areas in Ardèche and Drôme, every commune is at the most 30 minute away from a motorway or a main road. It is extremely easy to get around in the region: the A7 motorway allows you to cross the country from the north to the south but you can also follow the east-west axis using the A40, A41, A42, A43, A47 or A49 motorways.
