Short history Of Via Francigena

Via Francigena in the past was the way to connect Rome with Canterbury and Santiago de Compostela.

Nowadays few pilgrims choose to walk the Pilgrimage on the Via Francigena because this way is not as famous as the Camino de Santiago. This number is growing because many Pilgrims after their Santiago Experience want to enjoy the Camino spirit and discover a new spiritual way.

Via Francigena Vs Camino de Santiago:


  1. You will not meet as many pilgrims as in Spain, so you might be walking almost alone (but during summer holidays Via Francigena could get quite busy).
  2. It’s a relatively new Camino way, so local people are not tired to see Pilgrims arriving and they are more likely to socialise.
  3. Italian Food.
  4. It’s beautiful Italy; You will not find any other incredible concentration of stunning landscapes and so many churches and museums to visit in the world.


  1. The daily Itineraries may be a little bit longer or shorter sometimes.
  2. There are not as many bars along the way as on the Way of Saint James.
  3. There are not many fountains along the way (but don’t worry ask the Italians help and you will get water). Just carry one extra bottle on your backpack.
  4. Accommodations might be a little bit far from the official route so you will have to walk a little more.
