Via Francigena

The Via Francigena  (The French Way) is an ancient pathway  from Canterbury in England to Rome, which has been walked by pilgrims for over a thousand years ago.    

The path through the heart of Tuscany is considered the most   scenic  part of the entire Via Francigena.

The British Archbishop Sigerac (989-994) pioneered the route and described each stage on his way back from Rome.
