La via Francigena, da Canterbury alle Alpi.
1000 chilometri sulle orme di Sigerico
A thousand kilometers on foot (or by bicycle) in the footsteps of Sigerico, the archbishop of Canterbury who left for Rome in 990, leaving the first written record of what is still today one of the most famous and loved pilgrimages. Forty days along a millenary road full of charm: from green Kent, the “garden of England”, to France, through suggestive regions such as Champagne-Ardenne with its large vineyards (but don’t miss the cathedral of Reims), or the forests of Franche-Comté and the beautiful medieval town of Besancon. Continuing you will reach Lausanne, in Switzerland, and from there you will arrive at the small village of Bourg St-Pierre, the last inhabited center a few kilometers from the Gran San Bernardo pass, to then rejoin the Italian section of the Via Francigena. With all the practical indications: the detailed description of the walking route and the variants for the bike, the maps for orientation, where to find hospitality and places to visit.
