The Via Francigena Canterbury to Rome – Part 2: The Great St Bernard Pass to Rome (Cicerone Guide)


This comprehensive guidebook covers the second half of the Via Francigena – a 1900km pilgrim route that crosses Europe from Canterbury to Rome. From the halfway point at the Great St Bernard Pass in the Alps, this book splits the second half of the pilgrimage into five sections (with further start points in Vercelli, Passo della Cisa, Lucca and Siena) and concludes by arriving at St Peter’s Square in Rome. All five start points are places where pilgrims can easily reach or leave the route by means of public transport, should they wish to tackle the journey in shorter stages. Illustrated with clear, original sketch maps and colour photographs, the step-by-step route description also includes detailed information about historical sites and all facilities available along the way.
