Via Francigena (or Romea) is the common name of an ancient road and pilgrim route running from France to
Rome and eventually to Apulia, where there were the ports of embarkation for the Holy Land. The starting point was considered to be in England and then the route passes through France, Switzerland and Italy.

We will cover only some areas of the Italian part of the route, touching among others, cities such as Vercelli, Pavia,Fidenza, Piacenza Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, San Quirico d’Orcia, Bolsena, Sutri as well as less known towns.

In medieval times it was considered one of the most important routes (also for commerce). Goethe once said that Europe was born on pilgrimage. Learn about the culture, art, language and food. Grammar review in context
