The itinerary covers a stretch of the Via Francigena that descends from the Great Saint Bernard pass, crosses the entire Valle d’Aosta region and then heads towards Rome.

Description of the route

Leave the car in front of the Church of Sant’Ilario in Nus, go up the regional road and after a few meters take the large path on the right indicated as the path of the Via Francigena.

The view is pleasant on the imposing peaks including Mont Emilius and Becca di Nona and covers the whole central valley.

The route is characterized by a mixed itinerary, along farm roads, paths, stretches on asphalt. You come across villages and vineyards, in fact the path is also known as the “Chemin des Vignobles”. The whole route is well signposted with indications of the Via Francigena.

This route also partly follows the route of stage 20 (Fénis-Châtillon) of the Cammino Balteo trek.
