    When to leave for the Via Francigena? image

    The Via Francigena passes through regions with very different climates, from the Grand Saint Bernard Pass at 2500 m to the Po valley, from the Cisa Pass over the Apennines to the Tuscan hills. 

    The best periods to travel the entire route are May and June, or September and October. It is advisable to avoid the hottest months, especially in the Po valley, where the shade is limited and the weather can be stifling.

    Be aware that the Grand Saint Bernard Pass is usually only open from early June to early September, due to the snow which makes it impassable for most of the year. Even the Cisa Pass can be covered with snow during the late autumn or early spring.
