Mon Roadbook app: designed for the self-guided trips, "Mon Roadbook" travel assistant guides you throughout your journey via a mobile application to download on your smartphone.
Prices indicated are calculated based on a limited number of seats available or for a departure in over 2 months from today. Once all prereserved seats are filled, or for reservations with a departure in less than 2 months, we might have to acquire seats for a higher price (depending on availability at the moment the reservation is made), which might result in the application of a supplement that increases the closer we are to the departure date.

Our trip

  • A walking holiday through the beautiful valleys of the Menton foothills, from the rugged mountains to coast.

  • Experience a small taste of Italy in the architectural and cultural heritage of the villages you walk through.

Walk from the area referred to locally as "Wonderland" all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. This trail takes you on a journey through truly incredible landscapes. Explore mountain villages, each with its own fascinating culture and rich history. From the rugged mountain terrain to the gentle shores of the Mediterranean Sea, through an area whose Italian roots have intermixed with more recent French influences, immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy the walking holiday that you have always wanted.
