Bibliography

The “Official guide” of the Via Francigena on foot is the result of hard work and cooperation between European Association of the Vie Francigene – réseau porteur of the Via Francigena, designated by the Council of Europe for the safeguard and the promotion of the itinerary –, the regions of Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Tuscany, Lazio and  the publishing house “Terre di Mezzo” of Milan.

An English guide book, by Paul Chinn and Babette Gallard, of the path from Canterbury to Rome, created by Pilgrimage Publications, with the sponsorship of the European Association of the Vie Francigene, is also available.

There are other publications as well that describe paths that are more or less different from the original one, which is marked in the area with street signs and white-and-red blazes.

As a matter of fact, some authors wrote their guides before the certification of the itinerary.
