E-bike tour in the Great St. Bernard Valley. A cycling route crossing the Via Francigena (i.e. Pilgrims Way), following the so called Salt Way. That’s history! Salt reached the whole region from the Alps along this route, it was used since ancient times to preserve meat. Salt plus breeding: this is the tradition of Aosta Valley cured meats!

Our reporter Patrizio and his guide Ettore follow these bike tour stages: Saint Rhémy, for a taste of local Jambon de Bosses; the Spring of Citrìn; the historical village and open-air museum Ètroubles; the Rue Noeuf, an irrigation canal that carried water to the pastures, suiting perfect as a tourist route today.
