The Via Francigena represented the backbone of the European road network during the centuries of the middle ages, starting from the famous itinerary of Sigeric (Archbishop of Canterbury) who returned from Rome to England.
Today this main road is traveled on foot in the direction of the holy places by thousands of pilgrims, and has become one of the most important historical itineraries in our country.
The Lunigiana and its valleys are one of the fundamental junctions of the Via Francigena (which enters Tuscany through the Cisa Pass to reach the rest stations of Pontremoli and Aulla, and then continue towards the sea).
This short walking itinerary allows us to walk along this millenary road, among beautiful woods, villages, suggestive mountain streams, vineyards and olive groves.
Walking on mule tracks and bridges that have lived through a thousand years of history, we will discover the life of medieval pilgrims and hunt for the symbols and secrets of the route following the tales and clues in Sigeric's diary.
The excursion is possible every Sunday from April to September, it is recommended to wear trekking shoes and clothing suitable for walking. The "Francigena For Kids" itinerary can also be made by reservation for groups, families and school groups.
