Hiking from France to Italy

This is a brand new tour for 2016 which takes us from Provence to Piedmont. The tour explores the stunning Mercantour National Park, a short distance from Nice on the Cote d'Azur, before we cross the border between France and Italy to hike in the Maritime Alps.  We stay in the small ski resort of Limone Piemonte at 1,000 metres and finish in the elegant Piedmontese city of Cuneo.  The mountain hiking has dramatic and spectacular views of snow-capped peaks, lakes and streams, and carpets of wild flowers in spring.  We discover the rich history of this region on foot, with its nineteenth century forts built along the border, attractive historic villages and a delightful remote church with 15th century frescoes.
