Via Francigena – Week 5
This week starts in the mountains & descends to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. After the beaches & sparkling waters of the coast, traverse across the lush meadows & waterfalls of Tuscany. Along the way you will pass through Sarzana, with its remarkable medieval fortress; the charming town of Massa, with its 15th century castle & Renaissance palace; the coastal town of Camaiore, with its 8th century abbey; & the famous Tuscan town of Lucca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with brilliant marble churches on every corner. You will finish your journey in San Miniato, in the province of Pisa. A romantic medieval center encircled in vineyards & olive groves, San Miniato is most well-known for its incredible basilica.
Aulla can easily be reached by train from La Spezia-Cinqueterre (25min) or Milan (3h50m).
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.
