The Holy Shroud trail (1 day)

To mark the Ostension of the Holy Shroud in Turin in 2015, we offer you a day’s excursion visiting the various resting places of this famous relic which, for a long period of time, belonged to the House of Savoy.

Meet your tour guide at the Hôtel de Cordon. You will explore Chambéry’s old quarter, St François de Sales Cathedral (where a replica of the Holy Shroud is on display), the Castle of the Dukes of Savoy, and the Sainte Chapelle, which housed the Holy Shroud for almost a century before it was moved to Turin. Traditional lunch in a restaurant in the old quarter. Boarding for a cruise on the Lac du Bourget, the biggest natural lake in France, with a stop in Hautecombe for an audioguided tour of Hautecombe Abbey, the tombs of the princes of the House of Savoy and the last king and queen of Italy. Coach to Aix-les-Bains: visits to the old thermal baths, the casino, the Arch of Campanus, the palaces…
