Drive time from Geneva to Nice

Does anyone know the approximate actual driving time from Geneva to Nice?

Google map says it is 616 kmís and will take 5.6 hours and I believe them down to a millimeter on the distance, but as for their logic in calculating time, I have been stung before!

Thanks K

multimap.com gives it at 583 km and almost 6 hours. I drove to Monaco from right up here (Flumserberg) and did it in less than 5 hours, but that was very early morning.

Wow ...which route did you take?
6.5 hours is about right from Geneva if you keep to the limits and take a rest break. I did it to Nice in just over 6 hours via the Great St. Bernard Tunnel which is closer to where I live at the other end of the lake. I used ViaMichelin route planner which said 5hrs 30 minutes. I had a 20 min. break and no hold ups.

Re: Drive time from Geneva to Nice

from here to Chur, over the San Bernadino pass to Milan and down south. It was very early, and I was in a very fast car

EDIT - it's about 550 km, average 120 km, stopped once for espresso and fuel in Italy and then floored it to catch up
