Via Francigena del sud
Da Roma ai porti d’imbarco per la Terra Santa – 800 chilometri fino alle coste della Puglia
In the Middle Ages many pilgrims, after reaching Rome, continued on to the Holy Land. Thus the Via Francigena del Sud was being formed, via gerosolomitana (towards Jerusalem) or via romea for those traveling in the opposite direction. Today, thanks to years of work, it is possible to retrace the footsteps of the ancient pilgrims, retrace roads rich in history (the Appia Antica, the Appia Traiana…) and rediscover every evening the flavor and meaning of hospitality of the past. From Rome to the coasts of Puglia: a journey in 30 stages through a land suspended between sky and sea, passing the Apennines right where they seem to disappear. Furthermore, the detailed description of the walking route and the variants for the bike, the maps for orientation and the altitudes, the accommodations and the places to visit. A guide that brings together the three peregrinationes majores of antiquity: Santiago, Rome, Jerusalem.
