“Veglie” on via Francigena

Be like an old pilgrim and try what they experienced! :)

Thanks to the “Veglie” (vigils in English) Francigene you’ll be able to enjoy the atmosphere of the small villages settled on the old via Francigena, the only road that linked Canterbury with Rome during the Medieval age. The Veglie Francigene are made up of 40-events going from July until October, tastings of typical food, historical parades and exhibitions. You can also visit ancient venues buy handicrafts, see medieval markets and so on. Here’s the “Veglie” schedule (for the full programme read the article about the Veglie Francigene in Italian – with a translator ;) ):
