The path that joins Sarzana (along the Via Francigena) with Ventimiglia and Menton (where it enters the GR653a Arles) has been described in detail by Silvio Calcagno www.viadellacosta.it site. The route comprises 12 sections, for a total of 335 km, patiently mapped so as to avoid as much as possible the main roads and especially the busy Via Aurelia. For each stage were surveyed places of pilgrim accommodation.
There are traces of GPS and Google Earth all the way, reported that there is at least in part with the yellow-white arrows used by the Brotherhood of St. James.
A great job, very useful to make feasible one of the most interesting features of the road that joins Santiago in Rome.
Recently, Monica D’Atti and Franco Cinti have created a guidebook itinerary, published by Terre di Mezzo.
This section has been run by Riccardo Carnovalini and Anna Rastello in 2011, during the Road to Marcella. The GPS tracks are available on a part of the www.camminodimarcella.it.
