Aosta to Verres part

Hi,
we are planning to walk the following 3 days: Aosta - Nus - Saint Vincent - Verres. I was wondering how 'quiet' this part is since you are walking quite close to highways and trains. Also, I am interested to learn how Nus and Saint Vincent are to spend the afternoon and night? Any feedback or tips on this particular stretch is much appreciated! Thanks!

I walked this in 2018 and it is an excellent walk. I forget the specific details, just the overall impression of a delightful experience lingers.

Sometimes you are above, and sometimes they are below.

It's quite a spectacular part of the walk as you leave the alpine section behind you. It is quiet, to the extent that like @Sirage it is forgettable. Definitely not places for rest days, apart from Aosta.

Ivrea is more interesting, especially if you are into kayaking or modern architecture (Olivetti factory). There is also a fantastic AirBnB called 'Spazio[Bianco]' there which I'd recommend.

thank you! so if you are saying 'definitely not places for rest days' do you mean that Nus en Saint-Vincent are ugly or boring or just quiet little villages?

We stayed just after Aosta in St Christophe, then at a fab place in chatillon called le lierre, highly recommended. We had coffee in Nus and i think it was all a nice area and i enjoyed it. Then we stopped in Issogne, then tavagnasco. There was a very very good pizzeria in Tavagnasco hidden down a lane where you would never imagine finding one. It is all nice walking but once you hit the Po valley floor it can get hot and there are mosquitoes in the hot months.

The history of mosquitoes and disease in the Po Valley is an interesting story, as the rice growing increased in that area. Malaria was a big problem but officially declared eradicated about 1970. Many Italians farm workers were sacrificed in the Po Valley fields up to the 50s and perhaps early 60s (?) on the altar of quality Italian rice. But the mosquitoes remain.

As I went to Italy to enjoy walking across the country, I took the train across this valley at the first sight of too many mosquitoes, then enjoyed the walk across the mountains and beyond.

Hi,

The Aosta-Nus-Chatillon section is quiet if you accept to walk on several ups and downs to small villages (or ruins...) rather than along the main road. But more tiring, of course. It was the official road when I did it (maybe still is).

Thank you, this sounds great!
