I started from Lausanne ended in Rome.Hi
I’m tolling with a crazy idea walking from Canterbury to Rome commencing April 2020. I’ve done both 800kms camino’s .....France and Spain. Need to do long walks .... coming all the way from Australia
There is the alternative more southerly route (with its two variants) via Avignon and then either the Via Domitia or the Via Aurelia ...Timing though is everything as there are two choke points. The first is the snow over the GSB pass which doesn't officially open until this week/mid-June.
I’m lucky that I’ll be able to take my time. I’m thinking around 10 weeks. Hopefully, this will allow time to throughly enjoyI started from Lausanne ended in Rome.
On The Francigena 3 mos but took my time.
The Francigena has a great app with tons of info, lodging etc.
I’m off from Vermont to Geneva on Sept 11. My second trip, Lausanne to Rome. Not doing France, too expensive.I’ll be walking in 2020......doing heaps of research , hoping I can complete the whole walk in 90 days
Have a fabulous time
UK is not currently in the Schengen scheme so the 90 days is only for mainland Europe (EU plus Switzerland). 90 days should be enough for those sections.The Schengen visa time limit is a burden but am planning to talk to the German consulate about the 90 day extension that could be available.
It's still possible to apply for a full Visa rather than the simplified Schengen one, and given that your country of arrival into the Schengen area would be France, that would be the country to apply to.The Schengen visa time limit is a burden but am planning to talk to the German consulate about the 90 day extension that could be available.
