We are currently walking the VF. We started in Ivrea on Sept 1. It has been quite humid each day. Much more than the Camino & GR 65.
Many greetings along the way if Buon ViaggioNotwithstanding that no two years are the same, thanks for your insights Ronha and Piero because my wife and I will be walking the VF at the same time of the year in 2019. Not sure what the Italian greeting is so will have to limit myself to Buen Camino/Bon Chemin for now.
