GR653D - Voie d’Arles

Via Domitia or GR653 - Voie d’Arles, Col de Montgenevre - Arles, 430 km, 17 days

The Romans constructed this way to connect - what is now - Italy and Spain through France. The itinerary is still known, and at places, Roman constructions are still in place.

The trail is revived as a possible route to Santiago de Compostela. Also, the trail - more or less following the ancient road - is described in a topoguide as GR 653D, Voie d’Arles.

The first part of the trail traverses the Hautes-Alpes. The walk has an alpine character. Between Gap and Apt, it follows the River Durance. Leaving Apt, it is the Provence you are walking through. Finally, in Arles, the trail ends.

Pilgrims then continue on the Via Tolosana, one of the main Ways of St. James in France, heading for the Pyrenees and Spain.
