    En effet, les traces gpx du premier jour données par John sont excellentes. Aucune erreur de parcours le premier jour!

    Indeed, gpx traces of the first day given by John are excellent. No error of course the first day!

    Wanderung in umgekehrter Richtung: Der Weg nach Muggia ist in der Tat nicht ganz so einfach zu finden. Bin ab dem Refugio Premunda zuerst dem blau weißen Kreis gefolgt (in den Ort und dort dann links abgebogen) und ab dann dem Alpe Adria Trail nach Muggia. Das war relativ gut ausgeschildert und war gut zu begehen.

    Walk in the opposite direction: The Way Muggia is not quite as easy to find, in fact. Bin first followed the blue and white circle from the Refugio Premunda (in the village and there turn left bent) and then from the Alpe Adria Trail to Muggia. It was relatively well signposted and was good to commit.

    Thank you John (22/07/2014)for the GPS data. We begin to walk at the end of August and we worried about this part of the route...

    There is MUCH better GPS data available for this part of the route on Waymarked Trails. You can download an accurate GPX track here: http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/nl/?zoom=17&lat=45.60331&lon=13.76494&hill=0#routes / There is also GPX data available for the other parts of the Via Alpina! Enjoy

    Our B&B is just few hundreds metres from Rifugio Premuda. We are open all days of the week for anyone who wants to stay for the night ! Breakfast , wi-fi and private bathroom included in the price ! Booking the room in advance is strongly recommanded since we have got just one room ( max 3 people) . For more info visit our site: www.invalle.com or our facebook page www.Facebook.com\bebinvalle
  • Paul - 2013-08-06
    The trail is really bad marked on the first two days. You can expect hours of looking for signs, checking your map and asking people (who, by the way have never heard of any "via alpina").
    Very disappointing all in all. Don´t just follow the blue/white marks, they don´t necessarily lead to a prepared trail. Following those signs we walked for 4h longer than expected on the first day.
  • Andrea - 2013-05-27
    Take the ship from Trieste to Muggia! It takes only 30 min, cost is 4€. Timetable see: http://www.triestetrasporti.it/index.php?trieste-muggia-giornaliera-annuale
  • John from Bath - 2013-05-21
    The directions are poor for the first stage and a half. Bus 20 takes you from Trieste to Muggia (supermarket here). Get a street map of Muggia, look for via Colarich where the paint marks start, then right up via di Santa Barbara, looking for steps up into the village on R. Take village street up to church (tap). Path starts just below church.
  • Henk - 2013-04-21
    The path is now well marked. You will find different trail names, being the same route: Traversata Muggesana, CAI 1, Alpe Adria Trail. If sleeping in Rifugio Premuda is not possible, you can continue the VA for 1 hour till Pese where there is a modern hotel.
  • Mountain Girl - 2012-12-22
    You will be following the "Traversata Muggesana" from Muggia. More people have heard of this path (when you stop to ask for directions, which you invariably will) than have heard of Via Alpina.
  • Elisabeth - 2012-11-12
    Pas de mise à jour en 2012 du topo-guide R1 : le départ n'est pas au château de Muggia et de toute façon il n'y a pas de balisage au départ... et ensuite si peu ! A l'entrée de Dolina, cela manque vraiment. On devrait préciser que le "refuge" Premuda n'est pas un refuge !!
    Automatic translation [Google]
    No update in 2012 guidebook R1: The departure is not the castle of Muggia and anyway there is no signage at the start ... and then so little! At the entrance of Dolina, really miss it. We should point out that the "safe haven" Premuda is not a refuge!

    "Rooms" in Bagnoli della Rosandra: "Camere Alpi", Gabriella Zerjal, cell: 33 817 51279, home: 040228438. Rooms are located in Bagnoli central square, about a 5 min. walk before you get to Refuge Premuda. Gabriella is a wonderful hostess. Bagnoli has a supermarket, pizzaria & fresh fish place.
  • Via Alpina International Secretariat - 2011-12-08
    @Daniel: thanks, we have updated the coordinates and hope to be able to upload detailed tracks in the not-too-far future. And yes accommodation is now in Bagnoli della Rosandra.
  • Daniel - 2011-10-20
    In the Refuge of Premuda there is no accommodation. But do not despair. The warden will phone the nearby B&B to book a reservation for you. Then have diner at the Refuge and after walk a kilometer down the valley to the square in the nearby village. The lady is very hospitable and friendly, she will even offer to pick you up! 25 euro pp +bf. Very well recommended!
  • Daniel - 2011-10-20
    IMPORTANT NOTE: The marked endpoint of the R1 stage is NOT Premuda! The refuge is one kilometer before, at coordinates: 45.6194,13.8659. On the entire Italian part the GPS-track is very inaccurate and misleading. From Trieste to Premuda follow the red-and-white track number 1, and be very careful for sudden turns!
  • Alpinisten - 2011-09-26
    Den Wegbeginn findet man, indem man in Muggia am Rathausplatz vorbei geht (Salita delle Mura) und dann die Via Roma quert in die Via Gabriele d´Annunzio. Dort ist auch das Wanderzeichen der Traversata Muggesana zu finden. Dennoch wäre ein Via Alpina-Schild hier zu Beginn des Roten Weges wünschenswert.
    Automatic translation [Google]
    The trailhead can be found by on the main square in Muggia passes (Salita delle Mura) and then crosses the Via Roma in Via Gabriele d'Annunzio. It also describes the character of migrant Traversata Muggesana be found. Nevertheless, a Via Alpina sign would be desirable at the beginning of the Red route.
  • Janek - 2011-07-21
    I don't know about this year, but last year when I started there was no sign indicating the start of the trail. Maybe there is one know, but I would have liked to take a picture of me in the beginning of that adventure I wa about to embark.
  • WestCoastHikers - 2010-09-06
    After leaving Santa Barbara there is basically no place to get anything to drink. Make sure to take plenty of water.
  • WestCoastHikers - 2010-09-06
    In this stage when the trail meets a road it is usually easy to go the wrong way, as there are no markings at those points. Turning left is almost always the right thing to do even when it looks wrong (like on the way up to Caresana).
  • vohi - 2010-09-01
    Wir sind direkt von Matavun nach Trieste gelaufen.. An halbem Tag gut machbar..(teilweise muss wg schlechter Wegweisung jedoch der Weg entlang der verkehrsträchtigen Straßen gewählt werden)

    Der Müllanteil in der schönen Landschaft nimmt stetig zu.. Wir sind in Italien angekommen!

    Wieder Erwarten war die letzte Etappe für mich die unattraktivste (Müll, schlechte Wegweisung, für mich unschöne Hafenstadt Trieste, dazu kam Regen...).

    Trieste: Ein Gewirr an Unterkünften (alle mit Sternen ausgeschildert), aber relativ teuer (3 Sterne min. 60 Euro pro Nacht)
    Automatic translation [Google]
    We went directly from Matavun Trieste .. At half day .. quite feasible (some have wg bad signposts along the way but the traffic prone roads are elected) The proportion of waste in the beautiful countryside is steadily rising .. We have arrived in Italy! All expectations was the final stage for me the least attractive (garbage, poor signposting, for me ugly port city of Trieste, it started to rain ...). Trieste: A tangle of accommodation (all marked with stars), but (min 3 stars 60 Euros per night.) Relatively expensive

    Nice housekeepers (and sensual waitress), they show me a good place to put up my tent - for free

    Refugio Premuda ist zwar als erstes Etappenziel angeschrieben, aber es bietet keine Übernachtungsmöglichkeit an - dessen sollte man sich bewusst sein, wir haben es leider übersehen und vertrauten auf die Beschreibung.

    Refugio Premuda Although written as a first milestone, but it does not provide overnight accommodation - which you should be aware, we have unfortunately overlooked and had confidence in the description.
