Torri Superiore is situated in the foothills of the Ligurian Alps, in a small valley crossed by the beautiful Bevera River. We are located about 11 km from the town of Ventimiglia, and 16 km from the border with France. To organise your travel, you can check GoEuro.
Trains travel direct from both Genoa and Nice to Ventimiglia. From the Ventimiglia train station you can continue your journey either by taxi (available at the station entrance, about €25), or using the local bus.
Bus number 6 to Torri can be caught on the main street in Ventimiglia (Via Cavour): exiting the train station walk straight ahead and turn right at the first traffic light on the Via Cavour. The small bus stop can be found about 30 yards away on the right hand side of the street, under the only tree in sight. Tickets (€2,50) are sold on the bus or at the station’s tobacconist. The bus runs 5 times a day. From the bus stop at Torri – the end of the route – it is an easy 400 meter walk (partially uphill) to reach the ecovillage.
Coming west from Genoa or east from Nice: exit motorway A10 at the Ventimiglia toll station, then follow the directions for “Colle di Tenda – Cuneo”. After passing through the next tunnel follow the road straight towards the Metro supermarket and signs for the village of Bevera. From Bevera follow the signs to Torri (about 6km).
Coming south from Torino: take road SS20 of the “Colle di Tenda”, after Porra (km.146,6) take a right turn right towards the Nice/Genoa highway, then right again towards the Metro supermarket and signs for the village of Bevera. From Bevera follow the signs to Torri (about 6km).
The bridge on the Bevera river in the Bevera village has collapsed a year ago, and it’s not possible to cross the river. If you drive from Ventimglia do not follow your GPS but drive along the National Road nr. 20 (SS20) until you reach the highway A10, turn left and drive towards the Metro supermarket; follow the brown road signs that will lead you to Torri.
