The European Association of Via Francigena Ways (EAVF) and the Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre (FFRP) have signed an agreement with the goal of enhancing and promoting the Via Francigena in France.
There are 16 stages and 266 kilometres to the fifth edition of the "Francesco a Francesco" relay. The journey will start on 19th September from St. Peter's Square in Rome and will end on 4th October in Assisi, the day dedicated to the feast of St. Francis, patron saint of Italy.
"Tuscany on the Way ... to the other regions. Regional policies on paths and cultural routes in the regions of central Italy". This is the theme of the two meetings scheduled for 18th and 19th October at the Abbey of Spineto in Sarteano (Siena).
The eighth edition of the European Festival of the Vie Francigena continues along a road rich with signage which promotes initiatives in the territories crossed by the cultural routes of the Council of Europe. Hundreds of events have animated the territories, communities and hamlets since the beginning of the summer focusing on the theme of “Paths. Food of the Soul”.
The Francigena award meets pilgrims on the road. The three winning stories of the 2017 edition will be supplied for free in the structures that have join the initiative organised and promoted by Betti publishing company.
Hospitality and services are two fundamental features for those who begin walking. Visit Vie Francigene is the project launched by the European Association of the Via Francigena Ways (EAVF) which promotes the structures connected to the Way.
The European cultural routes are the result of a laudable project, launched through the “Declaration of Santiago” in 1987 by the Council of Europe and are the embodiment of the core values of the Council from a cultural and touristic point of view.
On the 8th and 15th September 2018 the European Association of Vie Francigene (EAVF), in collaboration with APT Emilia-Romagna and with the technical support of ItinerAria S.r.l. and Fiorenzuola in Movimento Association has organised "I love Francigena", an event-trip along the Via Francigena that aims to involve walkers.
