Synopses & Reviews
LightFoot Guides are written for Walkers, Cyclists and Horse Riders, providing specific information for each group and enabling everyone to meet their personal goals. The complete, Edition Four, LightFoot Guide to the Via Francigena consists of three books: Canterbury to Besan on, Besan on to Vercelli, Vercelli to Rome. This book traces 776 kilometres of the Via Francigena from Besan on in France to Vercelli in Italy. The route closely follows the 10th century route used by Archbishop Sigeric the Serious, but adapted to current conditions. The guide contains a number of alternatives to reduce total distance, avoid possible difficulties or to gain access to specific loactions. The entire distance has been GPS traced and divided into manageable sections of approximately 22 kilometres, but accommodation is listed for the entire length of each section.
