Walking The Via Francigena, Stage 57: Aosta to Châtillon

This “Walking The Via Francigena” series of posts follow us, Gail and David, as we continue our walk along the Via Francigena pilgrimage route between Canterbury and Rome. In the fall of 2019, we completed the first leg from London to Canterbury, known as the Chaucer Way, and onward to the small town of Tergnier, France and in 2022 we completed Part Two of our pilgrimage, which took us from Tergnier to Gy, just south of Besançon.

Part Three of our trek is underway once again, this time taking us from Gy, through Switzerland, over the Saint Bernard Pass and into northern Italy, ending our walk in Fidenza.

  1. Was that bacon on top of the meat? I usually listen and watch your pictures after dinner. I often wish I was sharing your meal. We are having lovely warm weather here in Winnipeg and I am not sorry I am not enjoy to 30+ temp. David you photo’s are wonderful!

    1. Thanks Betty. It’s been a few days but that was a good meal. It wasn’t bacon on top, but pure slices of lard. It seems odd and it looks odd but it works, something I’ll have to try at home. Buon appitito!
