Manosque to Turin

Crossing the Durance river you’ll enter in the Haut-Var area. Admire perched castles while navigating a mix of steep roads and former train lines leading to scenic spots like Sillans Waterfall. Cruise the French Riviera’s coast, from Cannes to Nice’s Promenade des Anglais. Conquer the Èze Pass at 507m for breathtaking Mediterranean views. Cross into Italy, where Piemond welcomes you with its finest wines and Alpine foothills. Pedal to Turin, Italy’s royal capital, nestled amidst mountains and the Po River, offering stunning vistas.

Note: Please be aware that the section between Manosque and Meyrargues is currently not developed. In the meantime, we advise you to cross this section by train, which offers many connections per day. Go on the website ZOU and create an account to buy your ticket. You can also buy your ticket directly at the rail stations. Your bike will travel for free on this trip!

Additionnally, the section up the Roja valley near Ventimiglia is currently not developed. An alternative itinerary is being planned by the Italian and French partners of the region. In the meantime, we advise you to cross this section by train, which offers two connections per day. Go on the Trenitalia website, choose "advanced search" and repeat the procedure twice, one for the passenger ticket and one for the bike ticket.
