Save to my Account

The Col de Turini is a high Alpine mountain pass and sits at an altitude of 1607m/5272ft. It lies on the picturesque route from la Bollène Vésubie to Sospel in the Mercantour.

Route of the Monte Carlo Rally

The Col also happens to be on the route of the Monte Carlo Rally and passes through the vast Forêt de Turini on the slopes of the Authion Massif. It has also been used for the Tour de France on several occasions.

The Col is usually open all year but is subject to temporary closures when blocked by snow. Always check before setting off especially between September and May.

Don’t miss: the Monument aux Morts and other military interest above the Col on the Authion Plateau.
