Undoubtedly the most symbolic stage on the ViaFrancigena! The way to the pass leads along a road which has served the whole of Europe for 2000 years.

Countless archaeological sites line the ascent, above all in L’Hospitalet and on the Great-St-Bernard Pass.

Attention, from November to early June, the road and the trail are snowy. It is dangerous (avalanches) to cover this sectionwithout a guide!
