Hi! I just completed the Via Francigena from Canterbury to Rome. Started August 2 and finished on October 26, 2017. The spiritual, cultural, and physical experience was incredibly positive. I am very thankful. If you are thinking about walking the Via Francigena and have ay questions, please feel free to reach out. I camped about 45%, stayed in pilgrim hostels about 50%, and b&b or hotel 5%.
