The Via Francigena, is part of a series of ways, which from western Europe and specially from France, used to lead to southern Europe, especially to Rome and Puglia, in southern Italy, where pilgrims could sail to Jerusalem.
The pilgrimage to Rome, and the visit to apostle Peter’s grave, was in Middle Age, one of the three “peregrinationes maiores” together with Holy Land and Santiago di Compostela.

That’s why Italy was continuously traveled by pilgrims from all over Europe. Most of them used to stop in Rome, others used to go down the peninsula to the Brindisi harbor and from there to Holy Land.

Most of the pilgrims used to come from the Franc’s land, so the name francigena.
The first description of the way was written in the 10th century, by the archbishop Sigerico coming back from Rome to Canterbury, when he visited the Pope.

For practical reasons we divided the itinerary in 8 weeks, however we are very flexible:

You can start at any point of the road and on any day of the week;
You can divide some of the longest day in 2 and choose the places of your rest days.
As a courtesy service in most occasion you can shorten your stage by going with the luggage transfer.
