Focusing on the incomparable region of Tuscany, this book gives you the information you need to understand, prepare for, and pack for your pilgrimage on the Via Francigena. From when to go and where to start to what to carry, here's the practical information you'll need for your journey, written by a Camino and Via veteran who knows pilgrimage gear inside and out.
Calling it the Italian Camino doesn't do the Via Francigena - its history, the scenery, the art and architecture, the food, the wine, the culture - justice. The Camino and Via are too different, and too wonderful, to compare. Come see it for yourself. Buona Via!
