Friends of the Way of St. James the Provence-Côte d’Azur for over 10 years studying the path that joins Italy in Arles, along the ancient streets of Rome Aurelia (From Mentone) and Domitia (the Montgenevre pass).

If you own a Garmin GPS should find the route on Topofrance.
Richard and Anna Carnovailini Rastello have traveled this route on their journey to Sarzana to Somport, documented in site.
