2018 brings great news for “Romei” hikers along the Via Francigena in France.
The FFRP (Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre) has announced the homogenisation of the route in the department of Haute-Saône, after the department of Doubs which took place in 2017: the Via Francigena is now homogenised and signalled as GR145, a hiking route from Calais to Les Fourgs.
Over the next few months, in the regions of Hauts-de-France and Grand Est, the official signage will be introduced, with the red and whites signs (signage of the Grande Randonnée), and the Via Francigena logo which will be inserted step by step on all the signs of the region. The European Association of the Vie Francigene thanks the FFRP and the region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté for the work carried out and its recognition of the Via Francigena in the GR145.
This is a great step forward for hikers who wish to walk along this European cultural route and is also an opportunity to invite people to visit the most important historic-cultural sites along the Grande Randonnée, which can be found on their website.
