Alta Via Dei Monti Liguri

Alta Via Dei Monti Liguri

Alta Via Monti Liguri

“High Way of the Ligurian Mountains”

Description

Mondovi to Ventimiglia in 6 days. Pass through majestic forests, hidden villages (and abandoned ones), take Alpine roads built during the great wars, chance upon witches in Triora, end the adventure with a dip in the Mediterranean. This excursion winds its way through the back-country crossing through the Western Alps in Piedmont as well as the Ligurian Alps which meet the sea. A portion of the trail runs along the ancient Via del Sale (salt way) which was used historically as a means to transport salt by donkey into Piedmont. The stone “road” clings to the mountains side, and although it was a more difficult path to travel the merchants were able to avoid taxation.
