We also used the Lepere Guide (in French) by Adelaide Trezzini. Neither was perfect but both helped. You are in for a wonderful treat. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions.

Hello,

I had both, Lepere and Lightfoot, guides in 2015.

I was happy with the Lighfoot one, much practical and to the point (best with a GPS unit). For me, the Lepere one is rather verbose, partly outdated. I use it for having a general idea of the stage, cultural features and altitude profiles.

The information on the official site is quite useful either.

I used the Lightfoot guide, the VieFrancigene.org website and am very pleased with the brand new translated to English guidebook by Terre di Mezzo editors.1493134881203-1004779040.jpg
