More than a 2000 kilometers to travel, from Canterbury to Rome, step by step, over easy mountain paths, mule tracks, rural and secondary roads, cypress-lined dirt roads or those shaded by majestic pines. Under your feet run the oldest streets of these beautiful countries. Streets paved with river stones, slabs worn by the passage of time, until you reach the "cobblestones" of Rome. The trail will take you through villages where all roads lead to Rome. The official route of the Via Francigena is the safest, and was carefully designed to be traveled by all ages.
