    This stage, which connects Romont with Moudon, is peppered with beautiful vantage points. It is also one of the shortest on the Via Jacobi, 18 kilometers long. The day starts with a great view of the wide plain that you will walk through during the day.
    Shortly after the exit of Romont you cross the border to the canton of Vaud on an exciting mountain trail. After descending into the valley of the Broye, you will pass the little town of Lucens. A detour up to the fairy-tale castle with its many turrets is definitely worth it. Lucens is halfway to Moudon and you can stop in one of the cafes.
    Continue along the quiet path along the Broye River. Fruit trees and flowering shrubs grow on the shore. Your stage destination is the contemplative Moudon. Here, too, there is a lot to discover, for example the parish church or the two castles Carrouge and Rochefort.
