There is a path that traverses Italy from North to South to reach Rome, and beyond. It’s a walk of faith that during the centuries attracted millions of pilgrims looking for peace and blessing.
It is the so-called via Francigena or in Italian, the “Cammino of San Francesco”: almost 2.000 km crisscrossing through some of the key point of history, a walk of faith that was taking the believer from France to Rome and from there, down South to Apulia, where the harbor for the holy land was considered to be.
