    Arrivé de France en fin de matinée, j'ai parcouru l'étape par une chaude aprés midi de Juillet avec la nette impression d'un dénivelé cumulé un peu plus important que celui indiqué sur le présent topo. En effet, le tracé emprunte les sentiers sur les pentes et les abords du Mali Kras / 457 m et du Mont Carso.
    Ne pas oublier d'emporter une provision l'eau car il y a peu de possibilités de ravitaillement sur l'itinéraire....
    Le soir , j'ai dormi à SAN DORLIGO DELLA VALLE:

    Arrived from France in the late morning, I walked the stage on a hot afternoon in July with the distinct impression of a running a little higher than that indicated on this topo altitude. Indeed, the route follows the trails on the slopes and the area around Mali Kras / 457 m and Mount Carso. Do not forget to bring a supply of water because there is little opportunity for refueling on route .... That night I slept in San Dorligo della Valle: -Affitacamere ALPE Bagnoli della Rosandra 76 / A Tel: +39 338 1751279 Fax: +39 040 228438. € 30 uro shower but without breakfast (price 2013) .Home very nice and warm ... Pizzeria behind the church (3 *! ...). Grocery, bakery and bar on the town square.

    Just past Laghetti di Noghere the trail goes to Hwy 13 and jogs left and then right. However, in Aug. 2013 the right turn was gated and marked with “no trespassing” signs. A neighbour advised us to ignore the signs and proceed anyway.

    Bin am 5.6.2012 in Triest angekommen und habe dort 2 Übernachtungen gebucht, da die Busverbindungen von Bagnoli della Rosandra nach Triest sehr gut sind. Am 6.6. bin ich mit dem Schiff nach Muggia gefahren. Hatte den Bruckmanns Tourenführer udn Tabaccokarten dabei. Trotzdem habe ich mich mehrmals verlaufen. Mir hat die 1. Etappe nicht gut gefallen, da der Weg häufig über Strassen und durch die Randbezirke von Triest verläuft

    Am on 05/06/2012 arrived in Trieste, where I booked 2 nights, because the buses from Bagnoli della Rosandra Trieste are very good. At 6.6. I drove the boat to Muggia. The tour guide had Bruckmanns UDN Tabaccokarten it. Nevertheless, I have repeatedly run. I enjoyed the first Stage not best pleased, since the path is often over roads and through the suburbs of Trieste runs

    We stayed at the Hotel Alabarda on Via Valdirivo in Trieste, only 10mins walk from the station, bus station and seafront. Low budget but ok, supermarket in same block.
    We started by taking a boat trip from the seafront to Muggia, on 4th September 2011. It made a great start to our fortnight and I would recommend anyone to start like that. The paths on the first stage were reasonably clear, and the guide (Evamaria Wecker) could be improved if the locations of more water fountains could be included, as we discovered that it was the hottest September in that area for forty years. Indeed, this would be useful on the website. Also useful would be more suggestions for accommodation.
