Visiting the summit of Mont Ventoux was an awesome experience. We did it by car, taking the highway that went through Malaucène. We were so impressed by the cyclists that were making the trip up (and down!). It's chilly at the top (-4C in May) so if you want to wander, make sure you are dressed for it.
It's important to note that there are two approaches to get to the summit along D974. We found the one that came through Malaucène to be the more stunning of the two, as the another approach had denser vegetation.
