Salt Road - Limone Monesi





The Limone-Monesi is a wonderful itinerary that winds down an old military road between 5.905 and 6.889 ft (1.800 and 2.100 m) high. The unpaved circuit, which connects Limone and Upega, is 24-mile-long (39 km) and open to transit in summer and autumn. The path is freely accessible to hikers and cycle tourists, and it is also open to motor vehicles upon payment of a fee. The trail crosses enchanting places, such as the breathtaking lunar landscapes of the Carsene area, the untouched and safeguarded regions of the Maritime Alps and the Ligurian Alps Park, rich in biodiversity, and lastly the magnificent Bosco delle Navette  -Navette’s Forest, and the military fortifications dating back to the end of the 19th century. Along their journey, travellers can experience the extraordinary charm of countless and unforgettable scenic spots: it will be impossible for them not to come back to retrace this fascinating path.

Charming old track at high altitude linking Piedmont, Liguria and Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur, is now passable in safety for those who love hiking and mountain biking, quads, motorcycles and off-road.
