Via Francigena

I Love Francigena

The European Association of the Via Francigena Ways (EAVF) invites you to participate in “I love Francigena” events! 

“I love Francigena” is an annual series of events, praising the cultural route of the Via Francigena and providing a unique opportunity to discover sections of the itinerary, its cultural and natural heritage and tasting local products. This traveling celebration brings together walking enthusiasts, tour operators and associations involved in the promotion and enhancement of the route. 

Main goal of the initiative

Aiming to promote walking along the Via Francigena, the iniziative specifically focuses on:

  • Environmental education
  • Sustainable and slow tourism
  • Engagement of local communities and stakeholders
  • Route check
  • Promotion and visibility

How does it work?

A typical “I love Francigena” day will be an easy 10-20 km walk (depending on a section of the Via Francigena) mediated by a local guide who explains interesting facts about natural surroundings and history of the Francigena with a few sightseeing stops and a reception in the end of the hike. The hike is free of charge and a shuttle bus is organised from the final point. 

EAVF has been organising ‘I Love Francigena’ since 2017. Events have already been implemented in cooperation with regions and municipalities in Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Tuscany, and Lazio in Italy, and Bourgogne – Franche-Comté in France. The local administrations crossed and associations participate and support the event.
