The Via Domitia, the first Roman road outside Italy, linked Italy and Spain, via Montgenèvre and Arles. Ten centuries later, the road was brought back into use by pilgrims to the tomb of St James and later St Peter. The present-day path takes you across Provence, revealing a succession of wonders along the way. It is the missing link between the Via Tolosana, from Arles to Santiago de Compostela, and the Via Francigena, to Rome. Walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims, immersed in art and history.
