Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region: the Via Francigena itinerary becomes a local excellence

Thursday 20 January 2022, the Region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté invited the EAVF to discuss about the Via Francigena, indicated by the Region as an itinerary of excellence in its tourist itineraries Scheme.

Representatives of the Region and the departments of Doubs and Haute-Saône participated, as well as the Regional Tourism Committee and the Departmental Tourism Committees of these territories.

The EAVF, represented by President Massimo Tedeschi, councillor Emile Ney, Director Luca Bruschi and Jacques Chevin, technical contact person for the VF in France and Switzerland, presented the structure of the Association and its partners in France, with particular reference to the FFRandonnée and the Féderation Française Via Francigena (a network bringing together pilgrims and volunteers), with whom the EAVF has signed cooperation agreements.

The EAVF described the activities and studies carried out in Italy by the Region of Tuscany, which is very active on the Via Francigena route. The Region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté wants to work with the two concerned departments to create a regional action plan developing the route from the point of view of infrastructure, tourism and socio-economic development.
