HISTORICAL ROUTE

UPPER SALT ROAD

“'Man’s real home is not a house, but the Road, and that life itself is a journey to be walked on foot.”

DISCOVER MORE

The Upper Salt Road is a spectacular unsealed former military road that connects the Piedmontese and French Alps to the Ligurian Sea. It winds its way along the mountainsides following the main Alpine watershed near the border between Italy and France, at altitudes between 1,800 and 2,100 metres, in a succession of Alpine crossings, bends and thrilling passes

The, entirely unsealed road, connects Limone Piemonte, in the province of Cuneo, with Monesi di Triora in the Ligurian mountains covering a total distance of approximately 30 kilometres. It is open to walkers, cyclists and motor vehicles (except on certain days of the week when the Via del Sale is open to walkers and cyclists only) during summer and autumn, after the snow has thawed.
