With summits soaring to over 3000m above sea level, the marvelous Maritime Alps straddle the Franco-Italian border for 190km, and form the southernmost realm of the mighty Alpine chain. This is a region of striking contrasts, from quaint picture-book villages crafted in stone to herb-scented foothills and dramatic backdrops of jagged rocky massifs to thick woods and scores of beautiful lakes that glitter like gems. The Maritime Alps is a spectacular area for all walkers no matter their ability. The routes in this guidebook are suitable for novices and experienced mountaineers alike. The waymarking on each route is clear and they are spread across both the French and Italian areas of the Maritime Alps with 18 single day walks and six fantastic long-distance treks which crisscross back and forth across the French Mercantour National Park and the Italian Alpi Marittime Regional Park as well as traversing the Maritime Alps themselves.
