    Monaco- Trieste

    Decided to take the M2565 to Roquebilliere. There is a Carrefour along the way. "Camping Les Templiers" outside of Roquebilliere.
    Would only recommend this option, if you need to resupply.

    Monaco - Trieste

    Trail is obvious and going down from Col de Turini to Bollene Vesubie (supplies available there)

    a Hut/Shelter is located before Bollene Vesubie..great location to spend the night in for free.

    The trail from Bollene to Belvedere is easy. Food and drinks available in Bollene and Belvedere

    Don t miss the goat cheese from one of Belvedere bakery/grocery store

    Sospel - St Martin de Vesubie : about 7h30 of walking
