The Francigena Ways in the south, a bridge between east and west

The Francigena Ways in the South join East and West, Christianity and paganism, the Age of Antiquity to the Middle Ages. A transversal journey, through Roman stone-paved roads and ancient sheep-tracks, pagan temples, impressive cathedrals and Christian sanctuaries, gentle hilly panoramas and harsh mountain passes. This space is dedicated to the ancient and modern ways, and you will be able to find in our pages both the history of the ancient pilgrim’s ways and maps and descriptions of the modern itineraries of the Francigena Way or more precisely the Francigena Ways in the South.
