Via Francigena – Week 4
This week you will cross over the Appennine mountains, the “backbone of Italy” that stretches North-South along the peninsula. Enjoy the unbeatable prosciutto, parmesan & stuffed pastas of the Parma province, a food capital of Italy. Then hike through pristine woods through the mountains until you reach the famous passo della cisa, the pass that marks the beginning of your descent into Tuscany. In Tuscany you will pass the iconic Groppodalosio bridge, after which lies the historic town of Pontremoli, with the river running through it. Your final destination will be Aulla, a small town with breathtaking views of the mountains on all sides.
Fidenza can be easily reached by train from Milan or Bologna (both about 1h15m).
Waiting for you at your hotel will be all the material you need for your trip: hotel vouchers, a detailed description of the route & stops along the way, & the maps. You will also find information on churches where you can receive a benediction, should you desire one, and have a pilgrim stamp on your credential.
