Winning shots of the “Share your route 2023” photo contest by rurAllure 

After four months, the 2nd edition of the “Share your route” photo contest officially closed on 30 September 2023, with the participation of pilgrims, walkers and tourists from all over the world, sharing their slow adventures.  

The initiative, organized by the European project rurAllure, collected over 4,000 photos and videos; with over 1,700 of them from the Via Francigena. 

A great recognition for the route by those who travel it on foot or by bicycle every year: congratulations to all participants!
