Your post was a real treat! Thank you for taking the time, in particular, explaining how the VF differs from the CS. I chose to walk the northern camino to the primotivo expressly for the beauty and the solitude. I will only have time to journey from Lucca to Rome, but it sounds like the empty spaces will be similar. I am grateful for your post!!!

Check out my blog on 5 Things you need to know about the Via Francigena.
It covers interesting thoughts on the differences between the Camino de Santiago and the Via Francigena, Camping, Accommodation recommendations and more.

We walked the entire pilgrimage in 2018/19 and are really happy to share our thoughts.

I didn't know about the atm thing with the banks and post offices, otherwise I pretty much agree with everything you write about italy (I've had only two days in switzerland, so other then saying it was an amazing and beautiful climb and it's expensive I can't really comment).

I was pleased to see that many of your fav sleeping places in italy have also been my fav sleeping places. :) (gallina didn't make the list, I saw. I loved that place.)

yeah, that heat wave was interesting. I rarely had so early arrivals to day destinations on any of my caminos. but we had fun time and have fun stories! (cooling breeze next to an unaccessible swimming pool in cascina toledina :cool:)

Wow! Thanks heaps. This really helped to iron out some questions. I do have another question. Your backpacks look tops. We normally carry a back pack and a smaller front pack which in effect balances us out the way your packs do. Did you order them online or were you able to go somewhere and get measured? We live on the south coast of NSW.
Thanks in advance, Adriano and Connie

Thanks for the feedback. I have contacted Aarn in New Zealand to try and find the closest stockists of the packs. Will let you know as soon as I know.
