Via Francigena

Via Francigena - the ancient pilgrims' route from England, through France and Switzerland to Rome

  • Starting at the cathedral city of Canterbury, the first 33km of the 2000km walk brings you to Dover. This part of the 7th century route is fairly flat in comparison to the rest of the journey!
  • Take a ferry to Calais and continue this Medieval journey through the valleys of France, the challenging Alps until you reach Italy and the resting place of the Saints Peter and Paul in Rome.
