Via Francigena

Guado Chiavenna Fiorenzuola
Stage 17 Piacenza-Fiorenzuola – Criticality at the Chiavenna Ford

We inform pilgrims in transit that the crossing of the Chiavenna Ford is currently presenting serious issues due to the heavy rains and floods of the past few weeks.

Please pay particular attention during the crossing, especially considering the weather forecast which predicts more rain.

Pilgrims who wish to split the stage to avoid the ford can take a bus from Pontenure to reach Fiorenzuola.
