Lands of encounters and passages
Torino and the Val Susa on the Via Francigena
5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS
The Susa Valley stretches from Torino and arrives in France, through 3 passes that have marked its history and, in some way, also the destiny of these times. France is therefore nearby, and Torino is on the other side, further west.
This travel idea is designed for couples and families who want to experience nature but also meet the local people and hear their stories. We will discover a Torino with a multicultural soul, and then Susa, a city on the border, fascinating for its testimonies of Roman and medieval history. We will visit the Novalesa Abbey and the Sacra of San Michele, at the foot of the medieval city of Avigliana, with its lakes and nature reserve.
