This section gathers both low cost accommodation for pilgrims and tourists, restaurant and facilities, located along the route of the Via Francigena. Information about this accommodation are featured with pictures and are available on the interactive maps of the route.
The accommodation highlighted in the Visit Vie Francigene lists have confirmed to be open. AEVF is not responsible for the adaptation that each structure is required to make as indicated in the national and regional regulations. It is advisable to contact each accommodation in advance to find out about the actual opening and book your stay: this year it is compulsory.

The organization of reception facilities along the Via Francigena is not widespread and economic as on the Camino de Santiago. Even if the situation continues to improve, it is good to plan ahead, identifying at every stage an adequate accommodation to their needs.
Keep in mind that often the places of welcome have a few beds. We suggest you to book at the tourist facilities, while it is not necessary for the "pilgrims". However, you should notify at least one day before, specifying the arrival time, because often the custodians of the hostels do not live in close proximity and without warning you may risk find enclosed rooms.
The average price for a night in one of the refuges for pilgrims is hardly ever more than 20 Euro (minimum 10, maximum even 25 euro for the more “touristy” hostels), but there are facilities (above all religious ones) who provide accommodation on an “offer” basis.
