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.
Hostels, hotels, restaurants, bars and other enterprises: over 350 operators have chosen to take advantage of the service offered by the EAVF.
The Visit Vie Francigene network represents a meeting point between pilgrims and existing structures along the European route, which organises excursions and provides services. An ever-important window to the route, both on the website and on social networks. The first step on the Francigena actually begins online with our practical and functional travel information.
The Visit network allows members to be identified by walkers thanks to the EAVF website, www.viefrancigene.org – with over 1,300,000 visitors in 2017 – and the official Via Francigena app, which can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android.
The structures that join Visit Vie Francigene will be promoted on the official Via Francigena portal with photos, addresses and useful information regarding the services offered. The information will also be on the EAVF social pages. From online to paper: the activities that belong to the Visit family are included in the constantly updated list of affiliated facilities sent to pilgrims using the EAVF Pilgrim Passport.
Displayed at the entrance of the structures included in the Visit Via Francigena project are the official “Visit” window stickers, which promotes their part in the Via Francigena community. Many structures offer a personalised stamp with the pilgrim logo. The Visit group adopt a certain standard of quality and share the philosophy of a proposal that focuses on the walker’s experience.
Visit Vie Francigene is an opportunity to experience the Via Francigena online, in a European project of great cultural and social importance. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the dedicated page: https://www.viefrancigene.org/it/entrare-nella-nostra-rete/
