Having finished the GR5/E2 some years ago I was thinking of picking up the E7 and walking towards Italy. I’m not sure where to find the most up-to-date information. I thought the E7 continued east from Aspremont via the GR51 but from the current maps on geoportail.gouv.fr I see a common path E7 – E12 – GR653A that splits from the GR51 before Gorbio, with the GR51 continuing via Gorbio, Sainte-Agnes and Castellar to Menton, and the GR653A dropping down directly into Menton. Does anyone know the “official” route or otherwise know if one is a better hike than the other?
I assume that from Menton the E7 follows the Via Aurelia (road walk?) to Ventimigilia where it picks up the Alta Via Liguria?
Any up-to-date info would be most appreciated! Thanks!
