The itinerary takes place along the Via Francigena with a very scenic route. The Via Francigena is the route travelled in the Middle Ages by pilgrims from Canterbury to Rome. The stretch that crosses Aosta Valley goes from the Great St Bernard Pass to Pont-Saint-Martin.

Description of the route

From the village Villefranche in Quart go up the hill in the direction of the castle. Leave the car in the small parking lot and reach the castle, explanatory signs tell the story of this manor. In the park you can see two monumental trees, a beech and a maple. The path 103 starts from behind the castle, has an almost flat course, very panoramic, the vegetation is typical of arid areas. Once in sight of the village of Nus you can decide whether to go back or go down to the village with a fairly steep path.
